Sometimes, during flights, aircrafts have to change their route (their flight plan) because of unforeseen events, such as storms. These meteorological phenomena, which may be accompanied by hail and lightning, are difficult to predict; they are known to appear in a wide area, but it is difficult to accurately predict when and where the storm focus will happen.
SITECH UK & Ireland, the leading distributor of Trimble® technology, now offers an innovative progress tracking software solution that uses drones to help site managers map, measure and manage their sites more effectively.
Scientists at CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, have solved a farming challenge using artificial intelligence to identify the boundary of every individual paddock in Australia’s grain growing region from space – around 1.7 million of them.
