What is it about?

Crop-Dusting Agriculture Drones fly over the fields and dispense fertilizers, medicine, water, or whatever is needed. This work focuses on redesigning the dispensing mechanism to make it more efficient to maximize resources utilization, such as the amount of fertilizers, flight time, and costs.

Why is it important?

Agriculture Drones have a very short flight time, which translates to a relatively small size of the agriculture field. if the dispensing mechanism is ineffective (takes a longer time to open or close, or opens at the wrong places, etc.), the overall benefit of the drone becomes greatly reduced, this work aims to correct that and maximize efficiency.

Perspectives

Research Series: The Internet of Everything (IoE) [2017 - current] This work is part of the IoE research initiative I am currently embarking on, which aims to Implement the Internet of Things (IoT) in Every aspect of our lives. Since I ventured into IoT in 2016, I covered; Precision Agriculture, Water Management, Vehicle Fleet management, IoT-Robotics, Energy, and recently, Covid-19 related technologies.
