S3-CAV
Simultaneous Safety and Surveying for Collaborative Agricultural Vehicles

____

ABSTRACT

S3-CAV focuses on making the ability to perceive the local environment in 3D accessible to farmers transnationally. We devise a sensor framework which we populate with various vision-based and proprioceptive sensors, and combine their real-time input with stored data to provide short-loop safety responses and data sufficient to precisely control an application device in 3D.

S3-CAV focuses on making the ability to perceive the local environment in 3D accessible to farmers transnationally. We devise a sensor framework which we populate with various vision-based and proprioceptive sensors, and combine their real-time input with stored data to provide short-loop safety responses and data sufficient to precisely control an application device in 3D. The detailed data from the sensors is also sent to a commercial cloud-based Precision Farming Management Information System, where it is combined with stored data from earlier passes and other sources to produce human-readable maps with semantic overlays showing crop health, crop maturity, field traversability, irrigation networks, etc., whatever is relevant and requested. The versatility of this general sensor framework makes it truly transnational — sensors and overlays can be adapted to specific crops, climates and geographical conditions.

In the context of the S3-CAV project, ISSIA’s research activities will focus on stereovision data acquisition and processing for environment mapping and situation awareness.

Surveying for Collaborative Agricultural Vehicles. We are mapping the crop to achieve an indication of its health and harvest-readiness, so farmers can treat their crops according to the diversity of the land.
