Robot – Strategy

1st task:

Depending on the height of plants camera or laser will be used to recognize the

left/right plants. They will define obstacles and in given radius (say 1 meter) is selected the biggest gap where to navigate.

2nd task:

Laser is used for obstacle detection. If thegap is smaller than robot width it will

turn in place and return in the same row.

3rd task: Task 1 with plant detection, log files post-processing into map
Free style: Cooperation with an autonomous drone

Problems / Challenges

1.) How to get from the airport to the Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences?

If you are travelling by plane and you need a transportation from and to the airport, we recommend that you ask at GoOpti. Thay will pick you up at the airport and drop you off at the Faculty.

2.) How will the pots/maize be positioned on the grass? Do we need to adjust the hight of the sensor? 

We are planning to drill a hole for each pot. The edge of the pot will be just bellow the surface of the soil. We will add some extra soil on top of each pot, so the robots will not get stuck. The hight of the maize should not change to much by doing so.

3.) Our robot will have to cameras. Can the robot turn in every second row in the 3rd task?

Of course. The gole of this task is to build a map of the field and to treate dried/damaged (painted) plants. So the robot can skip evey second row as long as it records/treats two sides at once.

 Quick navigation:


 The location of the 1st and 2nd task:

FRE2015_4

Note: The maize plants will be burried in soil. The maize will stay in the pots, but the pots will be covered with soil.

The location of the 3rd task:

FRE2015_12

Note: Some of the plant will be colored brown using ordinary spray paint (Dupli Color spray (Motip Dupli GmbH), RAL 8017, ord. no. 584916).


 The corn seeds are planted (date: 4-5-2015)

A special thanks goes to our students (Biosystems enginnering) that helped us plant the seeds.


Corn plants after 25 days (date: 29-5-2015)

corn29 5 1

corn29 5 2

The current hight of the maize is around 20 cm. Please note due to stability / redundancy most of the pots include 2 maize plants.

Test row

As there are many questions regarding the field, we have planted two short rows of corn in order to test the "maize in pots plan". The pots are compleatly covered with soil with a few rocks on top (due to the type of soil).

Plotting and planting

The rows have been plotted and holes drilled. First maize plants will be planted by the end of the week.
