There is a cynical spin off for the definition of farming that goes:
FARMING - Noun. [farm-ing] – The art of losing money while working 400 hours a month
For many farmers this is a painful, imprisoning reality
Robotic Perception introduces: Profitable Farming
Accurate positioning information of the robotic system is a crucial first step. Required accuracy usually varies from a few meters down to centimeter level.
Most importantly, it must be a competitive platform capable of entering the market.
Robotic systems are mounted with cameras, Lidars and other sensors that allow it to operate in its environment. Choosing the right sensors and derived perception algorithms are a key for making the robot a winning platform.
Autonomous robotic systems that cut labor costs are crucial for increasing farmers profit margins.
Autonomous robotic system are constantly performing motion planning and control to complete their missions.
