Monitoring fields with UAVs

December 9, 2011

 

They’re using radio-controlled aircraft rather than autonomous machines, but it’s still a big improvement over the time spent walking fields or the lack of detail that comes from only checking the edges of a field. I expect further improvements with the introduction of better sensors and on-board controllers.
