Recent discoveries at University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Georgia Tech Research Institute are advancing and expanding crop monitoring for farmers.

The collaboration, led by Georgia Tech School of Interactive Computing (IC) Professor Frank Dellaert and Ph.D. student Jing Dong, has developed a four-dimensional reconstruction tool to harvest critical crop information over time. Using cameras, GPS, sensors and a complex algorithm, the team was able to create cloud-based, autonomous crop monitoring, compiling 3D images of peanut crops over time. The results of the study, 4D Crop Monitoring: Spatio-Temporal Reconstruction for Agriculture, was presented at the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), held in Singapore from May 29 to June 3.
