IRIS performs the first flights at the facilities of Ángel Camacho (Seville)

Tags : 

During the first days of December IRIS started flights in Spain on the estates that the Angel Camacho Group has in Cuarterola and Cucanoche, both in Seville. It is in these estates where the Angel Camacho Group has installed two of its three autonomous lasers, on two towers of several meters high.

Despite the bad environmental conditions, IRIS was able to successfully complete the flights over the areas of influence of lasers, indicated by the technical team of Angel Camacho and CUDEMA.

Due to the poor state of the terrain, caused by the heavy rains, the IRIS and Ángel Camacho teams decided not to fly over Eoloarroz, the third farm where one of the autonomous lasers has been installed.

Notice boards for dissemination of Laser Fence

Tags : 

Volterra has designed the notice boards which are a valuable tool to disseminate information about the project to indirect stakeholders and the wider public.

At five of the six trial sites the partners have placed a notice board with a description of the project in Spanish and English. Additionally, two project partners have placed a smaller sized copy (A3) of the notice board at their office in their respective working languages.

A pdf version of the notice boards is available through our download section.

Below you can see the installation of notice boards at our partners´ facilities and trial sites.

IRIS visits Muñovela

Tags : 

On November 23rd and 24th, Santiago Martínez (IRIS Drone Specialists) visited the estate that the Institute of Natural Resources and Agrobiology of Salamanca (IRNASA) has established in Muñovela. This institute belongs to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and carries out multidisciplinary research for agricultural crops and their products, environmental conservation and livestock health.

The objective of the visit was to make the Laser Fence project known to the technicians who currently manage the farm as part of the dissemination actions of the project. After the meeting, a rapid trial was carried out with the drone and the thermographic camera, which was followed by several local farmers.

IRIS begins processing field data

Tags : 

IRIS is currently processing all the information obtained during the fieldwork, which took place between late October and early November on the project plots of Aboyne (Scotland), Malpas (England) and Delft (The Netherlands).

From the thermal and visible photographs taken in the field, IRIS generates, using photogrammetric software, a 3D model of the work area. With this 3D model, and the thermal images captured, IRIS is able to identify and position the animals present in the area through their thermal responses. This makes it possible to assess the laser’s effectiveness objectively and precisely.

The company expects to continue taking images in Seville after November 27th.
