and Value Chains
Navigator Forest Portugal
Sensing, robotics, automation and its integration with advanced planning and decision support systems are the technologies focused on these strategies.
Thus, it will be possible to boost the digital transition of forest operations, using new generation equipment and more agile decision-making processes.
This work area aims to reduce the impacts of forest operations on the soil, increase operator safety and reduce costs with a chain optimization, contributing to a greener economy and carbon neutrality.
The 3rd line of action focuses on the following areas:
It will be possible to boost the digital transition of forest operations
sustainable forest logistics
Consequently, it’s necessary to optimize logistics and value chains, sharing information and adapting available resources to a more sustainable and efficient timber harvesting.
The activities are:
New techniques for land preparing, plot fertilizing and defending against fires
New models for organizing logistics chain
Development of practices for reuse remain material for energy and other purposes
Development of structured data sharing systems between different machines, transportation systems and players
Analyzing available data in order to increase the forest work´s quality and safety
Mechanization, automation and robotization
These are the activities in this strategic line:
Improvement of the existing equipment, capable of analyze the ground, transmit information and carry out forest operations with environmental efficiency and compatible cost with the process and product economy
New intelligent soil preparation equipment to reduce fire risk by controlling the Shrubs and understory vegetation.
