    Title of presentation: 

    GALIRUMI project: Computer vision and Galileo localization for autonomous weeding robots  

    Abstract of presentation: 

    The main objective of the EU GALIRUMI project is to deliver robot weeding for herbicide-free weed control in dairy farming. Robotic weeding will reduce the environmental impact of dairy farming by eliminating herbicide use and reducing exposure of farm workers to herbicides. Among the technologies developed in this project, I will focus on weed detection and present DTU’s research activities in this direction.

      The continuous introduction of automation and information technologies in agriculture is expected to positively affect the food production by improving the efficiency, the quality and the sustainability of the whole process. In 2020, the global precision farming market was estimated to value USD 6 billion, and it is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of more than 10% for the next 10 years. Field robotics, aerial drones, digital twins and IoT will be key drivers of such growth and play a key role in the transformation of this industrial sector towards what many call Agriculture 4.0. This session presents the state-of-the-art within Danish academic research and industrial development, and shows the potential of autonomous systems technologies to boost the digital transformation of agriculture as well as the open challenges to be addressed.
