TECH4EFFECT app developer says that from a technical point-of-view the speed of forestry digitalisation could progress much quicker than it is currently.
TECH4EFFECT joined four other RTDS projects and the Head of the BBI JU in the EU Green Week Partner Event: The Market-Driven Circular and Bioeconomy.
The TECH4EFFECT final event will be held on Thursday, 10 June, from 9:00 am to 12 noon. Deadline for registration: Monday, 7 June.
Astrup says that the key to big data use in forestry rests on core narratives that will drive new business models, further efficiency gains.
Continued collaboration between European scientists is in line with the spirit of publicly funded European research, development and innovative aims to make valuable impacts in the forest sector.
SILVISMART sparks innovation in Konrad Forsttechnik’s latest onboard computer control system used in cable yarding technology in steep terrain harvesting.
In cable-assisted timber harvesting forces on the cable are enormous. But how strong exactly are they?
As part of TECH4EFFECT WP3 , Markus Engel and Andreas Mayerhofer (ÖBf – Austrian Federal Forests ) and Thomas Holzfeind from BOKU carried out investigations on winch assisted harvesting machines in the ÖBf forest district Flachau (Austria). They recorded the inclination of the machine during operation on steep terrain using a tilt sensor installed on the winch assisted Valmet 840TX forwarder. At the same time, the tensile forces in the cable were measured with a load shackle. In addition, all activities of the machine were recorded by an action camera, which will be analysed later together with inclination data and the tensile forces. The results are intended to shed light on the tensile forces that occur in the cable of the machine as a function of the work processes and the machine inclination.
