Drone camera detects crop health in Esperence

Drone camera detects crop health in Esperence | Emerging Technology | Scoop.it

Company director Lynden McGregor said the drone had a range of applications, including monitoring the health of crops.

It has also been used locally to inspect waterlogged paddocks to get a clearer idea of damage.

Mr McGregor said there were plans to acquire an infrared camera, using heat to detect crop health. The drone is powered by a battery and is only allowed to fly to a maximum height of 120m.

It has a range of 16sqkm and takes photographs with a modified standard digital camera.

The photos are stitched together using sophisticated computer software and linked with GPS co-ordinates to provide an accurate picture of the land below.

Robots to the rescue

Robots to the rescue | Emerging Technology | Scoop.it
Inspired by termites’ resilience and collective intelligence, a team of computer scientists and engineers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has created an autonomous robotic construction crew. The system needs no supervisor, just simple robots that cooperate.

Alistair Currie's insight:

Interesting applications and inspiration from nature. Will probably result in many lives saved and improved. Considering similar applications but with UAV Arial drones there could be great things on the horizon.

Shows how 3d printing can be a major part of manufacturing and how it can revolutionize the ability to make a print
Evan Astley's comment, March 14, 2014 6:59 PM
3d printing is a process that let you create a physical object and lets you print it on a 3d file. This would help machining by being able to see the actual design of a product then making it using the material need to make it. also this would help with inspection of a product

Because if there's one thing that we can absolutelyrely on when it comes to robotics, is that things will never, ever work the way that they're supposed to, so if we ever hope to get them to reliably do anything, algorithms like this are going to be critical.
