BBC Online commentary on role of Drones in Agriculture

Drones are used for remote inspect by civil engineers of bridges for defects and corrosion using image recognition cameras and AI on board. They capture a digital 3D picture of the bridge

That can be analysed. Inspection of crops using image recognition and stereo cameras onboard drones is a similar idea to capture a “3rd eye” over an remote landscape and using AI to identify anomalies rapidly and cost effectively. This is where Drone tech comes into its own where humans and costs are prohibitive and efficiencies are enabled here with AI enabling hundred and thousands of “eyes”.
