Recent accomplishment (Sep. 2021 ~ Mar. 2024)

The development summary of Autonomous Driving Speed Sprayer Control was uploaded to YouTube as a 5min. movie, and linked it to this homepage.

This project was conducted from September 2021 to March 2024 under the Agricultural Machinery Technology Cluster Project, funded by Institute of Agricultural Machinery, National Agriculture and Food Research Organization.

Started a small project with Kyoto University(2023).

It focused on 3D LiDAR function which can detect pesticide droplet as optical reflection with precise 3D location information.

Utilizing this feature, 3 dimensional position of each pesticide droplet and its point cloud behavior can be observed numerically.

This project has been just started, and we believe this technique can be applied on more expanded analysis in smart agriculture.

This summary was also uploaded to YouTube as a short movie, and linked it to this page.

Recent accomplishment(2022)

Thanks to the increase in number of Global Positioning Satellites and wide spread low cost multi-band RTK-GNSS systems,
Stable localization can be obtained even in the high density cultivated apple orchard.

This project has been proceeding in “Consortium of the Development of Smart Technology for Orchard Pesticide Spraying”, which is one of the projects on Agricultural Machinery Technology Cluster funded by Institute of Agricultural Machinery, NARO.

Demonstration at Aomori Prefectural Industrial Technology Research Center Apple Research Institute (September and October, 2022)

Multi-band RTK-GNSS Local Base Station

Optimum control of pesticide spraying

According to the pre-learning information, pesticide spray can be done precisely only to the  of apple tree

Accomplished projects(2021)

Automated driving pesticides sprayer by utilizing machine vision technology for localization without RTK-GNSS underneath fruit trees in an orchard.

This work was supported by Cross-ministerial Strategic Innovation Promotion Program (SIP),“Technologies for Smart Bio-industry and Agriculture“(funding agency: Bio-oriented Technology Research Advancement Institution).
