Although it’s not widely known outside of the industry, computer vision is beginning to be used at scale in agriculture, where it is delivering meaningful improvements in efficiency and quality, with the potential for tremendous impact on how our food is grown. In this presentation, we introduce deployed agricultural computer vision solutions for harvesting and spraying. We explore key technical challenges that John Deere had to overcome to create these solutions and highlight the ways in which agricultural vision applications often have requirements that are quite different from those of automotive and commercial applications.
