Low-Cost UAV imagery systems for Precision Agriculture

The proposed project aims to develop the use of Low-Cost UAV imagery systems for precision agriculture applications with focus on weed and irrigation management applications. Generally, Precision Agriculture is a management system that aims to compile different technologies to control the use of the agriculture process inputs such as chemical herbicides, seeds, water, etc., to enhance the quality and quantity of its output, while preserving the surrounding environment from any harm that might be caused due to the use of these inputs. Recently, during the last decade, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) platforms showed great potential to enhance the use of remote sensing and imagery sensors for different PA applications as weed and irrigation management. Therefore, the proposed project aims to help the agriculture industry through providing the users with the ability to generate a map for the agriculture field which show the weed patches in the agriculture field along with the water needs of every spot in the field using low-cost UAV imagery system. The partner organization (Cansel) will work with the inter to generate a processing tool that can be provided to its customers to enhance their work especially for irrigation management.
