Vision-based machine and robotic systems are anticipated to play a larger role in the agriculture industry in the near future. These optical-based systems, which incorporate custom designed lenses, are used to improve planting, harvesting, pest inspection, quality-control, and more. Today, machine vision systems used in agriculture help farmers maximize efficiency by understanding crop conditions through data collection and improving the speed of cultivation as well as the quality of yield. A practical example is a harvester truck equipped with an optical yield-measurement system that can collect data to help a farmer make strategic decisions based on current soil condition with respect to weeds, insects, and diseases. Other current and future, vision-based, precision agriculture applications include harvesting solutions, water well management, infrared spectroscopy and imaging analysis, remote sensing through satellite or drones, artificial horticultural lighting, high-throughput phenotyping, etc. Universe Kogaku’s expert engineers can help you identify a stock lens, or create a custom one to fit your needs. The ability to meticulously maintain quality and specifications make Universe Kogaku a leader in standard and custom design lenses for a multitude of industries. Regardless of performance or application, we are happy to provide detailed information regarding budget recommendations, design concepts, assembly timelines, environmental factors and more.
Gone are the days when managing and monitoring livestock was entirely dependent on manual labor. Technological advancements have relieved the farmers from such physically demanding and time-consuming tasks. The farms [...]
While still in their relative infancy in terms of mainstream adoption and application, drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or un-crewed aerial vehicles, have already dissolved rigid traditional [...]
Hyperspectral technology can capture the continuous electromagnetic spectrum of color and light through a lens and split it into different spectral lengths using a dispersive element such as a prism [...]
Drones have always been linked to photography and are widely recognized to be indispensable photography tools. That being said, these unmanned, autonomous flying machines are now being used to reform the agricultural industry. [...]
Farming equipment has come a long way and at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV, John Deere made a big splash with their new technology. Exhibited in 2019, John Deere’s newest combine [...]
Recent estimates from the United Nations predict the world will need around 60 per cent more food by 2050. Precision farming will be vital in meeting this demand. The use of machine vision in the [...]
Growing and preparing food is still rather low tech. For the most part; people are still key players at every step. However, that could change, and soon, as robotics is changing many aspects of life [...]
Robotic farming is here and it’s showing up in small pockets of the world. In the not-too-distant future, our fields could all be tilled, sown, tended and harvested entirely by fleets of co-operating autonomous machines [...]
For centuries, farming was an intuitive process. Today, it’s networked, analytical, and data-driven. Large farms (1,000 acres or more) started the trend, adopting the tools of precision agriculture—using GPS-guided tractors, drones, and computer modeling to [...]
If precision technology has driven the farming revolution of recent years, monitoring crops from the sky will drive the next. With using drone or UAV technology, you can capture highly accurate images of your fields, [...]
To feed the world’s growing population, farmers are looking for new ways to automate agricultural processes which includes using robotics. In recent years, there has been an increase in the agriculture industry’s level of interest [...]
