Rather than tending fields by the hundreds of acres, farmers could one day tend each and every plant with the help of machine learning, robots and other technologies. A five-year, $7 million grant from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture will help researchers develop such a cyber-physical system. The project is led by Soumik Sarkar, the Walter W. Wilson Faculty Fellow in Engineering and an associate professor of mechanical engineering.
