Madrid, 1st December 2015. Global Robot Expo, the international exhibition of robotics technologies, arrives to Madrid the next 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st of January. The “Pabellón de Cristal de la Casa de Campo” will host, in its 8.000m2, the most innovative robotics technologies in Europe attracting world leaders coming from the five continents: Representing first class international companies and more than 40 conferences previewed. COAG and Global Robot Expo have reached a collaboration agreement to bring technological innovations in robotics and sensing into the agricultural sector, including everything related to precision agriculture.

Precision agriculture is possibly the great agrarian revolution of the century comparable to the contribution of the industrial revolution in the last century. The ultimate goal of precision agriculture is to obtain greater economic, environmental and social returns.

Technological advances allow monitoring of the condition of crops with unprecedented accuracy thanks to a set of technologies that work in harmony. From shooting thermographic images with drones guided by systems of satellite navigation, to the implementation of smart sensors in crops that detect deficiencies nitrates or water needs, the computer analysis of all data and implementing corrections in each individual plant through smart harvesters.
All these technologies together will help to reduce operating costs to establish parameters such as optimum sowing density, estimating the right amount of fertilizer and predicting with much more accuracy performance and crop production.

The investments made by the agriculturist in these technologies are done with the purpose savings in both pesticides and fertilizers, to get a better recovery in the crops. Another positive aspect is the effect it has on the environment, more efficient use of fertilizers giving the right dose in the right place helps the soil and groundwater, thereby respecting the entire agricultural cycle and making agriculture more sustainable.

In addition, during Global Robot Expo conferences and talks will be imparted by the world’s top experts in robotics. The business forum will involve leading figures in the world of economics and investment, powerful companies and governmental agents drivers of new technologies and economic and social modernization. And will be attended by recognized entrepreneurs, managers and researchers of the most prestigious universities, research centers and laboratories around the world.
