Machine Vision for Agriculture Solutions

Machine vision is part of many automation and robotics applications used in agriculture. Tractors drive autonomously and the cultivation of fields can be carried out precisely and plant-specifically. Drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles record the condition of the soil and crops from the air. Robots assist in milking, feeding and monitoring animals. They are also used in greenhouses for harvesting and quality monitoring. Inspection of seeds and produce for quality and grade is also performed with machine vision technologies. This is today's agriculture.
