    • Create 20 experimental and educational sites in Normandy using with Farmbot
    • Inform/train young people and future farmers about digital technology and open-source hardware in farming
    • Innovate teaching methods by crossing agronomical, technical and digital skills and by mixing farmers, researchers and students.
    • Experiment the process with local productions, new sensors and improve the characteristics of the robot
    • Engage a dialogue with people on the development of the urban agriculture.
    • Show how the digital technology can reduce difficulty of work, limit the environmental impact and improve the productivity.
