How soon until we can get robots to tend our gardens? | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
These new devices promise to automate menial gardening tasks.
PIRatE Labs insight:
The internet of things for plants.  Much of this is old hat, existing for sometime now.  What is "new" here is the push to get these sensors into the hands of home gardeners and a price point they can easily afford.

Precise positioning system for UAVs

Precise positioning system for UAVs | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
Australian firm Klau Geomatics is now producing PPK (Post Processed Kinematic) GNSS positioning systems for drones and light manned aerial mapping systems. The system provides accurate camera locations for mapping from UAVs, which reduces the need for surveyed ground control to produce accurate DTMs and orthophotos from photogrammetry. PPK is similar to RTK GPS but…Read more →
