AUTONOMOUS PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY FOR BIOMASS TRANSPORT
The article presents guidelines, developed concepts and the construction of specialized technology tracked vehicle for the transport of biomass on wetlands, implemented within the framework of the development project No. PBS2/B8/11/2013 “Autonomous transport technology of the harvested biomass on protected wetlands" bound removal of unwanted vegetation from protected areas especially national parks, landscape parks and Natura 2000. The design of the new vehicle has been developed by a consortium led by the team of Power Engineering and Dynamics of Agricultural Engineering, BE-PIMR in Poznan. Its task is to find a solution that would significantly increase the efficiency of the process of obtaining biomass, taking into account the autonomy of action of the resulting structure. This technology will be one of the important links of the system built for the maintenance and improvement of biodiversity in protected areas.
