From the Internet of Fields to the Internet of Plants

Bosch Startup Deepfield Robotics is creating innovative technologies towards sustainable farming. These include connectivity solutions to support farmers in better decision-making and robotic systems for improving seed breeding and mechanical weed control. Specifically, the talk will highlight Deepfield 4D-scan, a robotic system for automated field testing which has the potential to revolutionize plant breeding. The system comprises detection, identification, and plant analysis. As a result, a “patient’s record” of each individual crop plant and weed is “filed” from sowing till canopy closure, including 3D reconstructed plant models.
