• Lukas Esterle

    Associate Professor, AU

    Bio:  Lukas Esterle is an Associate Professor at Aarhus University. He received a MSc in Computer Science and a PhD from Klagenfurt University, Austria. He was a Post-doc at TU Vienna and a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow at Aston University and University of Birmingham before joining Aarhus University in 2019. He works on autonomous systems, collaborative behaviour, and computational self-awareness.   Title of presentation:  Digital twins and simulation for agriculture robotics   Abstract of presentation:  Digital Twins are models of physical systems, executed in parallel, and continuously updated with new data. Digital Twins allow us to monitor, analyze, and control physical systems. In this talk, we will explore the benefits of Digital Twins as well as the challenges we need to overcome in (multi-)robot applications within the agricultural domain.

      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.
