Here is the history of CANOPIES progress

Date Description


Official start of the project CANOPIES

11/02/2021 12/02/2021

Kick-off meeting


The website is on-line (D10.1). UPC and UNIROMA3


Document: Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation Plan (2021-2024) for the CANOPIES project (D10.3). UPC and all partners.


Document: Requirements, Specifications and Benchmarks  for validating the project outcomes (D2.1). Agrimessina


Document: Specifications and KPIs for the two robot prototypes (D2.2). DTI

This deliverable describes all the specifications and KPIs that will be defined during the development of the robotic prototypes. Following the development of the robotic prototypes the deliverable will be periodically updated during the project.


Document: Simulated Farming Environment and Basic Robotics Components. (Deliverable 3.4). PaleBlue

PaleBlue established the first deliverable in the Canopies EU project, dedicated to creation of the simulated 3D environment that would later be used in training up autonomous robots. A virtual vineyard with the grapes and vines is created, and set up in different light conditions. A mobile robot base is implemented, along with a number of sensors such as LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging). This builds the necessary foundation for prototyping and verification of robot interactions in a virtual 3D environment.

Integration weeks and Field validation. Collecting Data in Corsira, Italy.


Document: Guidelines for the integration of System Components (Deliverable 3.4). DTI

This report describes the composition of a Wiki page containing the guidelines for robot integration and to ensure the compability of software/hardware components with related documentation. 


The new release of the CANOPIES Simulator v1.8. The release notes and the files can be found on the link:

18/07/2022 During three days - 18 to 20 of July - the CANOPIES Teams are in the field of Aprilia, Italy for the first performance of the robot and checking and taking real data of the grape.
