In our increasingly “smart” and connected future, technological advancements will solve various issues facing the agriculture industry––from connectivity dead-zones and data collection to augmenting traditional farming skills and improving crop yield to meet the demand of a growing population. In this episode, we hear from Julian Sanchez, Director of Precision Agriculture at John Deere, about the tools and technology that will transform the efficiency of farming––Kirk Stueve, a farmer, and engineer with Ceres Imaging, a company that uses aerial photography to provide farmers with advanced crop data–– and George Kantor, a researcher and educator at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where he and his team are working on autonomous and semi-autonomous farming robots. Make sure to check out other episodes in this series featuring: Irene Petrick, Senior Director of Industrial Innovation in the Internet of Things Group at Intel and Sean Petterson, founder of Strongarm Technologies.
