Artificial intelliGence applied to pRecision farmIng By the use of GNSS and Integrated Technologies
Background & Objectives
AgriBIT aims to increase the precision, accuracy and continuity of services to deliver improved Precision Agriculture (PA) services to farmers, leading to a reduction in costs through decreased use of inputs (water, energy, fertilisers, pesticides), lower environmental impacts and increased production yields. It positions its innovations both at the level of intervention on the field and the capturing of the effects of PA over time, intelligently exploiting the information acquired before, during, and after direct intervention on the field. AgriBIT combines augmented GNSS and EO information with on-field and on-machine sensors and actuators, as well as expert agricultural knowledge to deliver simple, high precision, and continuously available services. It develops and extends advanced Artificial Intelligence algorithms to fully exploit this rich set of inputs to recommend actions to farmers building on past history and present context and to ease their workload through improved automation.
