    Associate Professor, SDU


    Henrik Skov Midtiby is an associate professor at SDU UAS Center. His research interests include interpretation of images acquired by UAVs. Images originating from biological domains (eg. fields and open sea) are of special interest.  

    Title of presentation: 

    The role of drones in precision farming  

    Abstract of presentation: 

    Learnings from the Square Meter Farming are described in the presentation. Fixed-wing drones were used in the project to acquire images from farm fields. The images were analysed post-flight and the extracted information was used to make informed decisions on subsequent sales of the produced crop.

      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.
