Example: SERKET is an innovative and disruptive Animal Recognition Software for Livestock, tailored for the pig industry, which is based on deep learning algorithms able to detect animals in images and monitor their health. SERKET uses anomaly detection to identify animals’ abnormal behavior and support the farmers in the implementation of the most reliable and efficient solutions for livestock management.
First entirely autonomous harvest, completed at UK robotic farm
It’s harvest season in many parts of the world, but on one farm in the United Kingdom, robots — not humans — are doing all the heavy lifting.
At Hands Free Hectare, an experimental farm run by researchers from Harper Adams University, in the village of Edgmond in the U.K., about 5 tons (4.5 metric tons) of spring barley have been harvested from the world’s first robotically tended farm. Everything from start to finish — including sowing, fertilizing, collecting samples and harvesting — has been done by autonomous vehicles on the farm, according to the researchers.
The team behind the project thinks that robotic technology could improve yields in agriculture, which is necessary if the world’s growing population is to be fed in coming years.
The researchers tackled this problem by using commercially available agriculture machines and open-source software that is used to guide hobbyists’ drones. Continue reading “First entirely autonomous harvest, completed at UK robotic farm”
