ACFR demonstrates the Digital FarmHand platform to local farmers

On the 23 June 2017, ACFR was invited to a Greater Sydney Local Land Services' field day event to present the work on the Digital Farmhand (previously named Di-Wheel). The event generated significant interest within the local farming community with over 100 people in attendance. During the event, the team presented:

  • The project overview 
  • The design concept of the Digital Farmhand 
  • Plant analytics via low-cost sensors such as a smartphone camera
  • The future vision of the project
  • Live demonstration of automated row turning using a smartphone
  • Live demonstration of a farming implement (spray boom) mounted on Digital FarmHand

Below are some photos from the event.
