CoRoSect’s journey: From end-users needs to use cases and pilots

Insect farms have been among the last fields to undergo a digital revolution, but changes are happening, and they will be reflected in productivity boosts, increased quality, and reduction of production costs. In order to create a paradigm shift in insect farming with state-of-the-art robotic solutions, CoRoSect partners have made significant strides, like setting up 8 use cases for piloting, to test and validate CoRoSect technologies. But before that, all partners made sure that end-user needs are a starting point for the proper preparation of the use cases. Based on the multi-instrumental analysis, 5 types of use cases were extracted:

● Quality Management and Intervention
● Oviposition Management
● Larvae/Cricket Management
● Pupation Management
● Harvesting/Waste Management
