This project aims to revolutionize the way high-value horticultural crops such as grapes, berries, and other fruits are grown by developing and implementing a precision farming ecosystem.
Start: 31-03-2022 / End: 30-03-2024
In this collaborative project, we propose to develop enabling technologies based on electroactive mechanisms for aiding small UAVs to effectively anchor on various surfaces in challenging environments. The novel technology and strategy can find a wide range of industrial applications and has the potential of revolutionizing aerial photography, infrastructure inspection, and surveillance.
