Overview

NREC is developing advanced machine vision techniques for safety around agricultural vehicles

Agriculture already has the highest fatality rate of any industry. Robotics offers the opportunity to improve efficiency on the farm, but these systems must reliably detect other workers to ensure their safety. This work is inspired by recent progress in urban pedestrian detection, but the agricultural domain has its own challenges to overcome and unique opportunities to exploit.
