The ForesBott Project


The goal of the ForesBott Project is the exploration and development of technologies that will enable the deployment of robots in forests for the purpose of forest health. Tasks to ultimately be performed by these robots include conducting field surveys, detecting and controlling invasive species. The initial phases of this project will focus on the design and analysis of robots in simulation.
