Project Goals:

This proposal is called sMart fArming with dRoneS (MARS) and aims to:

  1. Develop real-time telematics monitoring / inspection applications for agricultural crops using UAVs.
  2. Integration of agricultural information collected by UAVs into Geographical Information System (GIS) and cloud infrastructure for their immediate access and processing.
  3. Early detection and diagnosis of early stages of disease in trees and plants for targeted treatment and faster recovery of affected species using novel machine learning and computer vision methods.
  4. Integrate the MARS architecture subsystems into an integrated control, management and alert system using user-friendly mobile applications.
  5. Pilot Demonstrations of the Integrated Real-Time Agricultural Protection System in the Velvento Cooperative (ASEPOP) fruit growers, and Grevena Agricultural Cooperative (ACG) legumes, cereals and tobacco crops.
  6. Reduce the cost of production and supervision of farms by implementing and operating the proposed integrated MARS management system.
  7. Reduce the volume of plant protection products applied and consequentially decrease the expenses of the farmer and also  protect the environment.
  8. Strengthening the Region of Western Macedonia, which includes ASEPOP and ACG crops, as a model for the implementation of Smart Farming and Precision Agriculture.
