An integrated forest fire monitoring and information management system with intelligent image processing can help protect habitats and infrastructure.
While many farms currently approach their operations primarily from an agricultural perspective, it is worth noting that modern vertical farms share significant similarities with the manufacturing industry.
Aurea Imaging Launches TMS TreeScout, the World's First Tractor-Mounted Sensor for Precision Orchard Management
Powered by AI and high-definition 3D computer vision, Aurea's fully integrated high-precision sensor technology helps fruit farmers optimize their orchards at the individual tree level.
GoSmart, a member of the NVIDIA Metropolis and Inception programs, helps farmers better manage fish feed with autonomous systems powered by the NVIDIA Jetson platform for edge AI.
Fieldin Partners With Fruitspec to Provide Yield Inventory Technology to Apple Growers in the Pacific Northwest
FruitSpec's innovative technologies automatically track fruit sizes and quantities throughout the growing season so growers, packing houses and sales desks can better align fruit inventories to meet market demands.
Embedded vision has been transforming agriculture by enabling autonomous mobile robots to 'see' their environment for the purposes of picking & harvesting, plowing, weed & bug detection, etc.
In mid-December, Apple King of Yakima, WA upgraded its existing Ellips TrueSort apple grading & sorting technology to incorporate Ellips' "Deep Learning" solution called TrueAI.
Instead of elaborately programming a solution, neural networks and deep learning algorithms teach an image processing system to see, recognize and verify objects - in this case smoke.
In England, agricultural technology and machinery experts are working with IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH (Obersulm, Germany) to develop a robotic solution to automate lettuce harvesting.
Recognizing organic and multi-variant objects is no easy challenge in machine vision. However, the situation is different when using intelligent cameras such as those of the IDS NXT series.
By placing the camera inside the gripper, the position of the camera is fully controllable. The camera can point its optical axis at the apple, reducing image distortion and eliminating repetitive calibration steps during apple picking.
The LemnaTec system, called Scanalyzer3D, utilizes advanced cameras from Allied Vision to provide researchers with previously unavailable data on plant growth, root development, water absorption and drying, and photosynthesis.
BOWERY FARMING ACQUIRES TRAPTIC, 3D VISION AND ROBOTICS HARVESTING STARTUP, TO ACCELERATE THE COMMERCIALIZATION OF FRUITING AND VINE CROPS
Traptic's 3D vision, robotic arms and artificial intelligence (AI) combined with Bowery's world-class technology deployed in its farms will be used to harvest ripe strawberries.
Ground-breaking technology partnership will significantly improve plant yields and quality in AeroFarms' vertical farms through analytics, AI, drones and wireless networking.
By using a computer vision-controlled system to map terrain and identify the size and location of rocks embedded in the soil, the heavy lifting is done by automated machinery which saves farmers a lot of time and money.

"Smart farming" is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and - where possible - fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant protection products applied in small doses and in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful.
