In the Dusty Fields of Autonomous Farming, High-Performance 3D Vision Sensors Offer the Clearest View
New performance tests reveal how high-resolution 3D vision systems enable autonomous farm equipment to "see" through dust-even when lidar can't
More cucumbers and lower energy consumption thanks to Signify's full LED at Qcumber Optimize Nature VOF
A small percentage of far-red light guarantees a good plant development. At full power, the system delivers 78 µmol/m2/sec (+41%) more than the old installation, while consuming 20% less energy.
The average lighting rebate outside of horticulture is typically in the $10,000 to $20,000 range, while the average horticulture rebate is more than $150,000-with some exceeding $1 million.
KUKA and the Upper Bavarian company digital workbench have launched a cooperation at Agritechnica. The aim of the cooperation is a concrete product: a mobile harvesting robot to support fruit farmers during the apple harvest.
Although we are seeing technology being introduced into the routine of many American farms, including robots, temperature and moisture sensors, aerial images and GPS technology, millions are either not able to, or unwilling to, invest in the solutions available.
"Preserving Valencia's Water; Empowering Farmers with Organic Fertilizers for Pollution Free Aquifers".
The impact of inorganic fertilizers on the environment includes soil degradation, water pollution, and contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. More usage may lead to nutrient runoff, affecting water quality and aquatic ecosystems
In this article, we'll examine how stackable container farms can provide space-efficient commercial-level hydroponic production anywhere with a stable power and water hookup.
AI has enabled us to notice how food production systems have been organized around the scarcity of knowledge-intensive human skills, such as perception and reasoning.
The Data Hub allows researchers, innovators, and industry professionals to access publicly available data to enable data-driven decisions and increase profitability for farmers by breaking down data silos.
Located in Norfolk, the 25,000 sq m state-of-the-art climate-controlled facility utilises an energy-efficient, LED-based lighting system to produce high-quality crops on just four acres of land - yielding 250 times more leafy greens than conventional farming.
Cree LED is the first LED supplier to fully characterize products in horticulture metrics, such as PPF and Red PPF %, instead of lighting metrics, such as CCT and CRI.
Trina Storage delivers 50MWh energy storage system for an integrated Fishery-Solar-Storage project in Hubei Province, China
This project, installed over fish ponds, enables power generation on water and can be used for fish breeding underwater at the same time. It seamlessly blends sustainable farming with cutting-edge science and technology.
Spain-based vertical farming company will reduce CO2 costs by 79% deploying Skytree's technology in its growing processes
The new facility has an arch of 14.40 meters to maximize the use of space and spread as many seed trays as possible. In 12,000 meters, up to 5 million seedlings can be spread.
Wright Electric and CT Axter Aerospace Successfully Complete Maiden Flight of 800 kW Hybrid-Electric Crop Duster Aircraft, Wright Achieves 1.2 MW in Electric Propulsion Unit
"Not only will this be a monumental move for the agricultural sector, but successes like these are important for the aviation industry as a whole as we continue our work to develop and deploy a suite of technology solutions to decarbonize."

Image processing opens up a wide range of possibilities for the automation of modern agriculture - but what to do when only a small budget is available? That is where the uEye XLS comes in. With the launch of these super-small industrial cameras, even price-sensitive applications and volume projects become feasible. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 7 mm, the compact cameras offer excellent imaging characteristics without excessive heat generation, making them a perfect fit for embedded vision applications in agricultural machinery and equipment. The industrial cameras comply with the vision standard and are available with Micro-B connectors and with or without C/CS or S-mount lens holders, further increasing their adaptability to different agricultural environments. Thanks to these features, the cameras offered by IDS Imaging Development Systems lower the barriers to entry and make it easier to explore the potential of vision technology to optimize agricultural processes.
