What is the basic technology used to do the geomatching? Could you describe your basic system without giving away the secret sauce?

Hello everyone, with www.geo-matching.com we are creating a product comparison website for these types of solutions. One of our most popular product categories are UAVs for Mapping and 3D Modelling. These products are used for Argiculture purposes as well. Take a look and tell us what you think

Your comments made me smile. Creative. Maybe farm workers should become embedded systems engineers instead. We need to grow more of them (embedded systems engineers, that is).

than you @prv for a nice explanation...I wonder however how economical such a system would be...would it be just cheaper if the farmer (or someone from his family) just walks in the fields now and tehn

Once weeding is done for example, there is a need for monitoring, to ensure the effectiveness of the process as well as to check whether it is needed again. There are just cases of animals straying on to property that might need intervention. In areas where the watering canals are not well controlled pictures transmitted back can help check for flooding. Keep in mind we are talking about not so well developed infrastructure for farming where I think maximum benefit could be had if Robots can be deployed. Government agencies end up subsidizing these efforts anyway - so if they can be persuaded to foot the bill for these Robots, it helps overall.

how would transmitting pictures back to farmers help in managing the crops?

If robots are affordable then that's really good.

Wow that would be fantastic ... Yes agriculture is an area where technology use can of wonders and it'd going to be a necessity. I am also planning organic farming lets see if robots are affordable :-)

Several of the featured robots use our motor controllers. Agricultural robots require low voltage (24V typ) and relatively high current (10 to 100A), which is the range covered by Roboteq's brushed and brushless controllers.
