Autonomous systems can help to transform agriculture. From fruit picking, to forecasting, to inspection and monitoring, the use of such technology must be proven to be safe before its introduction and adoption.
This section pulls together all the research taking place in the agriculture domain. It also highlights cross-domain work which will be of use to those focused on this sector.
Where possible, a lot of the guidance we publish is intentionally developed to be suitable for use in any domain. You will therefore find key pieces of research below that are suitable for those working in any sector.
Body of Knowledge guidance
The guidance in the Body of Knowledge is often generalised, enabling you to learn from research undertaken in other domains. At present we do not have any guidance in the BoK based on research in the agriculture domain, so below you can access a number of entries that provide cross-domain guidance. You can also access all Body of Knowledge Guidance.
We have one demonstrator in the agriculture domain, linked to below. Our projects extend across a range of sectors and below are some other projects that may be of interest. You can also view all of the AAIP-funded demonstrator projects.
