"We think this is the best use-case of AI (Artificial Intelligence) today. We've basically turned a vocal sound into a machine command and proven integration of different systems is possible," says CEO Darryn Keiller.
A group grid of points (or virtual sensors) are created by an initial model estimate of the conditions at the surface (and above) and that virtual sensor is then nudged by the observations around it to the more accurate value.
The tool making these water measurements possible is a tiny graphene sensor that can be taped to plants - researchers have dubbed it a "plant tattoo sensor."
Desiree Kaplan for GreenMatters: Basically, the robot is towed behind a tractor and uses its cameras to automatically identify, target, and destroy weeds with nearly perfect accuracy.
Anne Trafton for MIT News Office: MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage
Nic Fildes for Financial Times: Farmers are placing sensors on various parts of cows' bodies - including the tail, neck, hooves and stomach - to help increase the productivity of their herds.
GardenSpace, a Smart Garden Robot that Waters, Monitors, and Protects Plants, Launches on Kickstarter
The GardenSpace camera sensor monitors health by determining how chlorophyll level, plant growth, and plant temperature change over time, and then sends precise information to the gardener via an accompanying app.
NDVI gives powerful insights and makes it easier to visualize crop health that the naked eye can't see. It shows you where the problem is in advance so you can fix it faster. NDVI technology does not replace humans, but it does help make your job easier.
Today, companies like Farmers Edge are installing weather stations in their customer's fields to acquire accurate, site-specific data. And having a dense network of weather stations enables detailed analyses of regional trends.
Anthony King, From Horizon Magazine: Bee-based maths is helping teach swarms of drones to find weeds, while robotic mowers keep hedgerows in shape.
Sentera introduces the latest update to its high-precision sensor product line, the Quad Sensor. Featuring four fully customizable imagers, the multispectral Quad Sensor is a precision agriculture, data-collection powerhouse.
XYZ Robot helps researchers develop hardier, weather-resistant crops
Liezel Labios for Tech Explore: This "near-zero-power" temperature sensor could extend the battery life of wearable or implantable devices that monitor body temperature, smart home monitoring systems, Internet of Things devices and environmental monitoring systems.
Gregor Heard for Queensland Country Life: The Rural IoT Network will provide the backbone infrastructure for shared networks of wireless sensors that constantly report on essential farm metrics.

EDF Renewable Services offers the same innovative solutions that maximize the performance of our own 5.2 GW of installed projects. Because we're not an equipment manufacturer, our recommendations are transparent and data-driven. We cover the entire project lifecycle: from pre-commissioning support, through warranty and post warranty operation, to late stage and decommissioning.
