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 Machine Technology Cluster funded by Bio-oriented Technology Research Advancement Institution.

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).
