Field robotics for agriculture and forestry
The Kantor Lab’s goal is to develop techniques for perceiving and manipulating plants using robots. The potential applications are broad, and include fruit detection and picking, yield prediction, health assessment, pruning, and crop management, among others. The lab currently has projects spanning outdoor interactions with field crops, indoor work with specialty crops, and drone flights for outdoor mapping. See the Research page for more details on the many projects and techniques being explored.
