Intelligent Automation Is the Future of Farming The global food demand is increasing, and farmers are increasingly enduring labor shortages and unpredictable weather conditions. AI and machine learning are helping farmers fight these challenges with automated equipment and computer vision, including John Deere’s new autonomous tractor.
Strawberry Fields Forever: Computer Vision Aids Precision Harvesting A robotic berry picker has the potential to change strawberry harvest. With 16 distinct robots within one autonomous vehicle, berries can be harvested quickly and carefully. The computer vision and artificial intelligence that enables such precise picking provides farmers with a trove of data about each plant and the farm, improving crops and profits.
Flying Autonomous Robots Have Far-Reaching Uses in Agriculture Labor shortages and increased costs are propelling IoT use in the agriculture industry. Orchards can soon use flying autonomous robots (FAR) to detect, harvest, and track the collection of ripe fruit.
Autonomous Smart Tractor from Monarch Takes Flight With goals for a more sustainable future, vineyards in California are exploring the fully electric, driver-optional, data-driven Monarch Tractor. The in-field hubs of data are helping farmers maintain root to fruit visibility, analyze moisture levels, count fruit clusters, and perform other agronomy functions. Zero emissions and a realistic price tag makes this vintage of autonomous tractors appealing to many.
Transparent Path Adds Intelligence to Long-Haul Cargo Monitoring 5G sensors working with cloud-based analytics allow shippers, distributors, and recipients to track location and status of perishable cargo.
Food Distributor Uses IoT to Keep Tabs On Perishable Food Shipments In addition to pallets of produce, Feeding the Northwest’s long-haul trucks are loaded with wireless IoT sensors that track the location, temperature, and humidity of their delicate cargo.
Smart Mower Brings Innovation and Vision to Roadside Management An industrial mower equipped with computer vision and data analytics keeps roadsides clear of grass, while preserving insect habitats, saplings, and high-quality grass clippings. Drivers and property owners get real-time information and ecological insights.
Farmers Find A-Mazing Ways to Add Revenue and Fun with Smart AgTech Fall brings crisp air, cool temps, and corn mazes. Once created by hand, GPS and cloud-based technologies enable farmers to develop intricate mazes and integrate Web-based interactive games that bring additional revenue to farmers.
Smart Grow-Bots Put to Work on the Farm, Increasing Yield Artificial intelligence and machine learning enable autonomous robots to grow, analyze, and harvest produce in greenhouse environments. Robots reduce labor costs, increase crop yield, and improve sustainability.
