Robocrops: Data science, technology and A.I. coalesce in the field of plant robotics

Read the full story from the University of Georgia.

A four-wheeled, phenotyping robot that operates autonomously or under human control, Watson is taking shape in Changying “Charlie” Li’s lab at the Phenomics and Plant Robotics Center (PPRC) on the University of Georgia’s Athens campus in collaboration with researchers in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.

Watson’s progress highlights UGA’s pioneering role in integrative precision agriculture, an approach that applies automation technology to farming. The PPRC advances this role by facilitating interdisciplinary, collaborative research at CAES, the College of Engineering and other UGA units.
