Project Member(s): Fitch, R., Alempijevic, A., Clemon, L., Bennett, N.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Wool Innovation Ltd RDC (Australian Wool Innovation On-Farm Project Proposal)
Australian Wool Innovation Ltd RDC (Australian Wool Innovation On-Farm Project Proposal)

Start year: 2020

Summary: The aim of this project is to develop automated inspection, handling, classing and baling for which no commercial product exists, thereby reducing labour costs, increasing productivity and mitigating muscular strain injuries.
