IoT and Advanced Agricultural Technology - Research Updates Video Series

Several faculty in the Purdue College of Agriculture are helping to move the technology front forward. These faculty have received some funding from Wabash Heartland Innovation Network – a project centered around economic prosperity in a 10-county region in Indiana and funded by a generous Lilly Foundation grant.

Graduate Student with Farm Field
Purdue Agriculture Graduate Student Ana Morales worked with professors Bob Nielsen and James Camberato on a WHIN-funded research project titled UAV based analysis of phenotypic responses in corn.

In this video series, you can hear first hand from the researchers about some of their latest projects. Watch one or all, but you are bound to learn something related to soil mapping, image processing, advanced analytics, instrumented livestock facilities, or improving educational delivery. Here’s an index and link to the videos which include a very brief introduction to Purdue Digital Agriculture, a presentation, then some Q&A dialog to bring more insight your direction.
