You will run through a complete development process and perform activities such as requirements engineering, interaction design, architectural design, component engineering, quality assurance, and also project management.

This project provides you with the chance to experience development in an industrial context, gain agricultural domain knowledge, and get in touch with new trends / evaluate new technologies to support logistic scenarios / job management tasks in the agricultural domain.
