Join the APRIL Robotics team when we speak at the KTN Agrifood Automation & Robotics Event in Peterborough on Friday 4th July. 

We'll be speaking about how robotic based material handling and processing systems can deliver a major uplift in productivity for food manufacturers.

Event Information per Knowledge Transfer Network:

With world population predicted to reach almost 10 billion by 2050, there is a pressing need to boost the productivity of the agri-food sector while maintaining high sustainability standards and low environmental impact. This is one of the greatest challenges for the industry, especially when labour costs are rising. Automation and robotics are seen as one of the potential solutions for these challenges, and activities are underway that develop new platforms that could save time and costs, and reduce labour requirements.

KTN is organising two events that will feature a range of speakers from the agri-food industry presenting examples of ongoing projects and successful approaches. These events will address the needs of the arable, horticultural and livestock industries, as well as the food processing and manufacturing sector. This events will bring together experts to discuss industry needs, technological gaps, key enabling technologies such as robotics and autonomous systems, imaging technologies, sensors, and the Internet of Things.
