Doctor X Nabat is the name of an application developed by members of the Plant Phenomics research group at the UB and Agrotecnio (CERCA center affiliated with the University of Lleida), in collaboration with the International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), for early diagnosis of diseases and insects in horticultural crops.
Research scientists at Texas A&M AgriLife are using artificial intelligence (AI) to set a new world record for creating algae as a dependable, economic source for biofuel that can be employed as an alternative fuel source for jet aircraft and other transportation requirements.
Knowing how much carbon is in the soil is a challenging question to answer at large spatial scales. However, knowing about soil organic carbon at regional, national, or global scales could help researchers estimate crop productivity, complete soil health, and even global carbon cycles.
Imagine a field of wheat that extends to the horizon, being grown for flour that will be made into bread to feed cities' worth of people. Imagine that all authority for tilling, planting, fertilising, monitoring and harvesting this field has been delegated to artificial intelligence: algorithms that control drip-irrigation systems, self-driving tractors and combine harvesters, clever enough to respond to the weather and the exact needs of the crop.
RoboSense announced a strategic partnership with Horizon Robotics, a global pioneer in edge AI computing platforms.
As about 30% of the UK raspberry crop lies rotting in the fields, the need for automating the delicate harvesting operation becomes more acute.
Researchers from the Pennsylvania State University have developed a novel camera system with active lighting as an important stage in the development of machine vision systems that enable robotic devices to keenly “see” the agricultural targets to which they will react.
IDTechEx has recently released “Agricultural Robotics Market 2022-2032”, a market research report exploring the technical and market factors that are shaping the emerging industry around agricultural robotics
This September, Agri-EPI Centre, in partnership with the world renowned Hands Free Farm, are running a virtual Hackathon event to address the safety and security challenges of autonomous vehicles and drones in agriculture.
A robotic solution to horticultural labour shortages is being developed to help secure the availability of the UK’s favourite salad veg – the lettuce.
