April 20, 2017 - The future of forestry is changing and FPInnovations, in partnership with Natural Resources Canada, have illustrated how in this three-and-a-half minute video.
The video explains that the world is changing because of industrial revolution, which includes mechanization, electrification, automation and cyber systems.
Here's what's included in Forestry 4.0:
Real environment - data acquisition: satellite imagery, enhanced forest inventory, remote sensing and LIDAR.
Internet of the forest: collaborative system, real-time communication and connected forest.
Advanced procurement systems: multiple sensors, automation, robotization, augmented reality, remote operations, intelligent transport system, optimized transport management, unmanned trucks and road sensors.
Data analytics: client's needs, decision support system, the right wood to the right mill, on-demand production and value creation.
The main message? "Our world is changing... Forestry is transforming as well."
