Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Robotics, automation and sensing technologies are slowly but surely revolutionizing the agricultural and horticultural industries across the globe. The rapid development of these technologies comes at the same time as some of the industry’s most urgent challenges in labor shortages and border restrictions as a result of an on-going global pandemic. This has accelerated the deployment of technologies for seeding, pest control, crop assessment, disease detection, environmental monitoring and optimization, harvesting, pruning, deleafing, etc. Such technologies include new sensor and measurement systems, advanced machine learning techniques, signal processing, automation and control of application-specific end-effectors, and autonomous aerial and surface vehicles with specific navigation technologies for orchards and glasshouses.
