Edge Computing: Reshaping the Agricultural Sector with Smart Farming Practices
Dr Bala Murugan MS
In order the manage the crop efficiently and continually, a drone fitted with a camera will be used to take pictures aerially. These pictures will be transmitted to the data processing system as part of the Intelligent Crop Monitoring and Warning System. A platform built on the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence processes these images. These images can help determine the stage of infestation, the crops affected, how to prevent the spread of the disease, and what types and amounts of pesticides to use. These UAVs can also protect crops from animal and human predators. The purpose of agricultural drones is to optimize agricultural operations, increase crop production, and monitor crop growth. Farmers can monitor their fields using sensors and digital imaging. Crop yields and agricultural efficiency can be improved by collecting information using agricultural drones.
