AppHarvest, Inc., a leading AgTech company and Certified B Corp focused on farming more sustainably using 90 percent less water than open-field agriculture and only recycled rainwater, announced today that it has acquired Root AI, an artificial intelligence farming startup that creates intelligent robots to help manage high-tech indoor farms.
Robotics4EU, a three-year project funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, is releasing two surveys to support the project implementation and its goal: to boost a wider adoption of robotics in Europe.
How important is technology to understand climate change and protect the environment? I-Seed project will combine bioinspired soft robotics, material science and artificial intelligence to develop new innovative robots mimicking plant seeds behaviour and able to monitor soil and climate parameters, like the presence of pollutants, humidity, CO2 levels, temperature and quality of waters. These innovative "intelligent seeds", named I-Seed robots, will be biodegradable, thus respecting the environment.
At this year’s FIRA virtual event (December 8-10, 2020) Fixposition is showcasing the Vision-RTK sensor, furthering precise positioning and autonomy in the field of agricultural robotics.
Crop scientists over the years have learned a great deal about how plants grow above the ground, but much less is known about roots and their soil interactions. Now, a Cornell University project will develop worm-like, soil-swimming robots to sense and record soil properties, water, the soil microbiome and how roots grow.
Researchers from CSIRO, Charles Darwin University and The University of Western Australia have developed a machine-learning approach that reliably detects invasive gamba grass from high-resolution satellite imagery.
An Agri-EPI-supported trial of a new crop monitoring service has delivered promising results for Niall Jeffrey of Bielgrange Farm in East Lothian, Scotland.
Many people think that the Sahara is made up of only golden dunes and scorched rocks. But it is time to drop that belief.
Aquaponics AI, a social-impact aquaponic technology company has released their cloud based data management and visualization solution.
Root crops such as potatoes, carrots, and cassava are notably good at hiding deficiencies or diseases that might impact their growth.
