Crover by CROVER

Crover is centered around the commercialisation of the first proprietary technology for locomotion in bulk solids and powders (e.g. sand, grains, powders), through which the Crover team has developed the world’s first ‘granular drone’ (i.e. a CROVER), in the sense of a device able to swim through granular materials.

Crover's first product, The CROVER Grain Storage Management system allows grain storage operators like farmers, grain merchants, co-operatives and port operators to:

- Monitor and visualize an accurate map of grain condition and key parameters

- Get alerts of sub-optimal conditions and intervene before infestations can develop

- Stir the grain bulk, which helps in maintaining their quality

- Collect representatives samples at depth

- Avoid dangerous walks on the grain bulk
