IFFRIT establishes pilots capable of demonstrating the use of robotics to reduce fuel accumulation, showcasing an advanced heavy-duty autonomous prototype capable of operating in near-real environments. IFFRIT addresses DIVA’s contemporary challenge of sustainable intensification by significantly reducing wildfire hazard potential, thus conserving natural resources and creating ecosystems that are resilient to climate change. The project explores novel robotic approaches, which are in line with the areas of expertise of Ingeniarius and within the application domain of SFera Ultimate. This 6-month project will utilise existing infrastructure and links to other European funding sources to systematically evaluate the proposed solution in forest settings, identify the long-term sustainability of the solution, and engage relevant industry stakeholders to establish strong collaborations for innovative robotic applications in forests.
