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.
The Hawkesbury Gazette featured an artilce about the event which can be accessed here.
