Mihajlo Pupin Institute's Robotics Center is goint to present a prototype of a mobile solar robotized power generator at the Solar Energy Show in Novi Sad. This generator is suitable for use in the agrarian sector, primarily for watering arable farms in summer months.
Manager of the Robotics Center, professor Dr. Aleksandar Rodic, explained to eKapija that the project was implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture.
- We are certain that Serbia needs such product, primarily because of small and medium-sized agricultural manufacturers, which are unable, for economic reasons, to use large irrigation systems - Rodic said and added that the solar power generator was also an exceptional export product.
Considering that the state backs this project, Rodic believes that solar power generators could be produced in factories in bankruptcy. A new program would revive such companies.
There is no such product elsewhere in the region and, as our interlocutor explained, similar devices exist only in the USA.
