Robotics and Sensing for Precision Agriculture
Problem:Farmers face a number of challenges that reduce their yields. Plant diseases, water stress, and other conditions result in fewer crops brought to market, ultimately leading to economic losses. Many of these conditions are detected today with the human eye, but regularly surveying thousands of acres with human scouts is impractical and uneco...
