Ingeniarius, headquartered in Valongo, Portugal, is a pioneering small team with a significant impact in the realm of robotics and intelligent systems. Ingeniarius stands as one of the world’s few SMEs dedicated to developing cutting-edge robotic solutions with a unique focus on challenging field applications. Since its inception in 2014, Ingeniarius has been at the forefront of designing and implementing innovative field robotics solutions, spanning infrastructure inspection and maintenance, agriculture, forestry, and construction. Their headquarters serves as a dynamic testbed, replicating challenging outdoor conditions for rigorous testing of mobile robots. When the headquarters prove insufficient, the surrounding areas of Valongo, boasting expansive agricultural fields, challenging mountains, and extensive forests, become a field of deployment and validation.
Beyond its pivotal role in OpenSwarm’s dissemination, Ingeniarius’s responsibilities fall on the proof-of-concept dedicated to environmental applications. Their expertise has been leveraged to upgrade their drones with state-of-the-art sensors, enabling precise data collection in demanding forestry environments. These drones, powered by the OpenSwarm code base, aim at exhibiting advanced capabilities encompassing localisation, mapping, path planning, navigation, and seamless communication. Through harnessing swarm intelligence, Ingeniarius aim to empower human workers in forestry tasks, driving efficiency and sustainability in the agroforestry sector.
