Working at various locations in South Australia and Victoria, with both wine grape and truffle crops; the project is developing key elements of sensor network and camera calibration, research and methods for combining the data from the different types of sensors, and developing data analysis methods that will provide actionable metrics for growers.
The network of sensors and drones used in The Digital Vineyard gather data that can keep Australian wine growers more connected to the soil-plant-atmosphere status of their crops than ever before. This is the way forward for precision agriculture.
This research seminar is a chance to learn more about this amazing project, meet the team, and ask some questions. It will include a presentation of the Digital Vineyard project, a Q&A session, followed by some friendly drinks, food, and networking – because we cannot talk about good wine without tasting some, of course.
This is a free event, but we ask attendees to please register so we can cater to numbers. Feel free to share this invite with your networks and colleagues.
