The 48th International Symposium on Forestry Mechanization (FORMEC 2015) took place in Linz, Austria, from 4-8 October 2015. The event gathered researchers, practitioners and government officials from different countries to share state-of-the-art knowledge of harvesting operations, with a focus on steep terrain.
On 6 October 2015, SLOPE partners gave four presentations showing the first results of the SLOPE project:
- Evaluation of RFID UHF tags for electronic marking of standing trees (Gianni Picchi, Martin Kühmaier, Juan De Dios Diaz);
- Survival test of RFID UHF tags in timber harvesting operations (Gianni Picchi, Martin Kühmaier, Juan De Dios Diaz);
- SLOPE, a 3D forest virtual system to support harvesting operations in mountain areas (Daniele Magliocchetti, Federico Prandi, Giulio Panizzoni, Davide Lotto, Raffaele De Amicis);
- Real-time managing of timber and biomass procurement, harvesting and supply based on multiple end-users demands in mountain forests (Seppo Huurinainen).
