Sorghum, a type of millet, mainly grows in Africa, Asia and Central America. It is under discussion as a biogas substrate and potential alternative to maize for energy recuperation from renewable resources. A team from “Carnegie Mellon University” (Pennsylvania) and “Clemson University” (South Carolina) is developing a robot which automatically collects parameters for the phenotyping of the plants. This data is evaluated and made available to biologists and genetic engineers. This specialised robot is absolutely unique. e-chains® from igus® are an important part of its technical equipment – permitting convenient attachment of all the cables and making the design significantly simpler.
