FORMEC cooperates with the SLOPE project

The SLOPE Technical Workshop will be held within the FORMEC Symposium in Linz, Austria at the beginning of October 2015. FORMEC aims to gather worldwide scientists, researchers and practitioners in forest operations and planning to encourage cooperation, and exchange of knowledge and information in forestry profession and science.

The first results of the SLOPE project will be shown by four presentations during the FORMEC meeting on 6 October 2015:

  • 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).

FORMEC will enhance the quality of the SLOPE project by sharing the knowledge of timber harvesting operations in mountain forests and by discussing preliminary results with the scientific forest engineering network.
