Florida Agritech Workshop 2022


With the growing world population and diminishing agricultural lands, it becomes imperative to maximize crop yield by protecting crop health and mitigating against pests and diseases. Though there are decades-old practices still in place, there is also growing adoption of so-called precision agriculture solutions, which employ emerging technologies in sensing, automation, and analytics in daily farmland operations. As farmers gain real-time access to critical data (e.g., land and weather conditions) and can quickly share any untoward findings with others, farmland operations are morphing into full-fledged cyber-physical systems. To this end, this project seeks to develop, implement and evaluate a multi-robot agricultural information collection system that is autonomous, efficient, and secure.

To discuss the state-of-the-art in this emerging topic and to identify potential research and deployment challenges, we are organizing a workshop on April 1, 2022, where keynotes and panelists from academia, industry and federal government agencies will be present. This workshop is partially sponsored by our NSF-CPS grant (#1932300).



The day-long workshop will be organized on April 1, 2022. A tentative agenda of the workshop can be found below.
