There’s a new toy at Niagara College’s Agriculture and Environmental Technologies Innovation Centre.

The RoamIO Jumbo is a robot that can patrol vineyard rows, in order to help farmers protect their crops from damaging weather and increase their profitability.

The local college also received multiple unmanned aerial systems and modern high-performance computing.

This would not be possible without $94,000 in funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada’s (NSERC) College and Community Innovation (CCI) Program.
