Special Issue Information
The rapid development of technology, combined with an increase in the demand for wood and reduced access to cheap labour, has resulted in significant progress in the construction of machines used in forestry in the last few decades. This has resulted in significant progress in the production, acquisition and processing of wood used in forest management. Automation and robotization are concepts that nowadays are often associated with forestry. This Special Issue aims to present the achievements in the field of modern technical and technological solutions that have recently appeared in forest management, with a particular emphasis on automation and robotization.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- New design solutions in forest machines;
- Automation and robotization in forestry;
- Measuring systems for monitoring work, testing forest machines and their performance;
- Electronics and computer science in forestry and in forest machines.
