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.
A new robotic mechanism has been developed by scientists from Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences for picking and trimming mushrooms. The team showed its effectiveness in the automatic harvesting of button mushrooms.
Skoltech scientists have created a new monitoring system for agricultural applications that performs real-time image segmentation on board the drone to identify hogweed. The research was published in a high-profile journal, IEEE Transactions on Computers.
Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), who recently won the Rabobank-MIT Food and Agribusiness Innovation Prize in 2021, got a good indication that their efforts were paying off when a judge offered to have his company associate join them for an early demonstration.
A gardener expecting the juiciest summer tomato crop might tend to every plant in a plot. However, that may not be the case with a farmer who toils to feed the world.
Besides enabling more potent smartphones and higher download speeds while riding the subway, cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, and wireless communications are on the verge of revolutionizing well-established industrial fields.
Researchers have assessed whether drones can spray pesticides better than conventional technologies in terms of cost, capacity, and management efficiency.
