Intelligent Robot Helps to Maintain Orchards

Intelligent Robot Helps to Maintain Orchards

Orchards are among the most species-rich biotopes in Central Europe. But many stands are acutely threatened: Since their management is hardly worthwhile from an economic point of view, the vast majority of orchards are not or only poorly maintained. Researchers are working on the development of an autonomous robot that will largely take over tree pruning independently in the future.

LEVA-EU Calls for Amendment to E-Bike Legislation

Trade association LEVA-EU, the sole voice for the light electric vehicle sector in Europe, says companies that solely assemble e-bikes are confronted with discrimination that is threatening their existence. The discrimination makes it almost impossible to start up new companies and could severely hinder the EU's net-zero emissions target.
