Aerial Platforms


Multi-robot systems capable of tracking tagged animals at a maximum speed of 17 m/s.

Capabilities: multi-uav communication and coordination, coverage and search algorithms.

UAV GPS-free auto nav tight orchard.mp4

Autonomous aerial platforms are capable of navigating in tight orchard rows without using GPS at maximum speed of 2 m/s.

Capabilities : vision-based obstacle avoidance, complete yield coverage

Inside the tree rows the robot needs to "sees" the tree branches and leaves and avoid them.

A front-facing stereo camera provides visual feedback which enables detection of any obstacles the robot "sees".

While the robot navigates safely inside the tree rows it can cover the surface of the trees and collect yield data.

A side-looking monocular camera collects yield data that can be analyzed to provide farmers with useful statistics like total yield count.
