Online Talk: From bees to Drones: Exploring bio-inspired machine vision applications for precision agriculture
When: Monday 28 September, 18:00-20:00 Eastern Time.
Bees are used as vectors for pollination and transport of agricultural chemicals in outdoor agriculture and greenhouses. However, in certain situations the use of natural pollinators is problematic. Small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) could serve as an alternate pollination vector in such situations and perform other functions. A step towards the deployment of such a tool is to bring the ability to locate, classify, and analyze flowers aboard a drone.
