Review on effective role of UAV in precision farming
Dr. SV Pathak, Dr. AG Mohod and Dr. AA Sawant
Recently, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have rapidly emerged as a new technology in the fields of agriculture. Small, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) provide an opportunity for multiple uses in agriculture sectors viz
land mapping, soil testing, pesticide spray application, weed management etc. in which the applicator can be displaced from close proximity for its effective application. As the world population will exceed, to feed them, the agricultural sector must increase production by 70%. The number of resources suitable for use in agriculture - land, water, energy - will decline. Here the farmers have to rely primarily on support of new technologies that not only increase production with limited resources, but also improve its effectiveness. The object of the review paper is the analysis of the latest technology available in the market and its effective use in Agricultural field. As well as advanced direction of crop capacity increasing in agriculture with help of Unmanned Aviation System. The use of modern unmanned aerial vehicles will extend the benefits of small aircraft. This paper also presents an embedded hardware/software architecture specially designed to be applied on mini/micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV).
