49th Intelligent Sensing Program - Sensing in Precision (Digital) Agriculture
Farming is one of the most essential industry for the UK and the world. It is also one of the industries still relying on largely the traditional farming technologies which have little changed over the past a few decades, in some part of the world over hundreds of years. Traditional farming technologies heavily rely on farming machines and mass usage of agrochemicals. The recent rapid development of the sensing technologies and ICT and big-data technologies provided a new opportunity for revolutionising the farming technologies which could potentially transform the traditional farming industry into an intelligent farming industry enabling precision and digital agriculture.
In the UK many innovative sensing technologies have emerged which enables the industry to transform into a digital farming industry. The UK also has a strong and vibrant farming community which has strong interests in green and sustainable agriculture practices.
In this one-day workshop, we aim to bring together farming communities, sensor technology providers, new technology developers, and other relevant stakeholders including innovation funders, to network, sharing of knowledge, to stimulate new ideas, develop collaborations and partnerships, and to promote the innovation development and the adaptation of such sensing technologies in the UK farming industries.
In this event, numbers of expert speakers have been invited to give talks covering key subjects relevant to market challenges and needs, state of the art commercial sensing technologies, emerging sensor technologies, as well as relevant innovation funding opportunities in the UK.
There will also be table-top exhibition places available for interested companies to book for displaying/ showcasing their technologies, expertise, and capabilities to the delegates. The exhibitor ticket includes 2 delegate places.
The programme will be uploaded nearer the time.
