Blog from June, 2017

On the 23rd of June 2017, ACFR was invited to a Local Land Services NSW field day event to present the work they have done over the last six months on a platform called the Digital Farmhand (Previously referred to as Di-Wheel). The event generated a large amount of interest within the local farming community with over 100 registrations for the event. During the event, the team presented:

  • the project overview 
  • the design concept of the Digital Farmhand 
  • plant analytics via low-cost sensors (smartphone camera)
  • the future vision of the project
  • live demonstration of automated row turning via low-cost sensors (smartphone camera)
  • live demonstration of a farming implement (spray boom) mounted on the digital farmhand 

Below are some photos from the event. Link to news article here hawkesbury gazette
