This page describes the robots we have built for research in agriculture
Mantis and Shrimp
General purpose perception research ground vehicles.
Used across our industry projects in defence, mining, and agriculture
Flexible platforms allow rapid deployment in new environments, then we can do the research back in the lab to work out what lower cost sub-set of sensing and equipment can be used to build an industry / application specific prototype
In addition to the sensors seen below, we have added a soil conductivity sensor (dragged behind Shrimp), a natural gamma radiation sensor (also to measure soil properties) and recently a hyperspectral imaging sensor.
Coming soon... a new robot for the vegetable industry.
Coming soon... a new robot for the dairy industry.
Large area remote sensing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
Used across our projects in weed detection.
The UAV has a downward pointing camera with resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels. The field of view is 28 by 22 degrees, and the sample rate is at 3.75 Hz.
