Thomas Held -

Topics

  1. Call for collection of clips showing ROS usage in agriculture

  2. Discussion on a potential track on agricultural applications during ROS-Industrial conference

  3. Discussion on a hackathon event that Ilias would like to host

    • A tractor (or a simple four-wheel vehicle) that can gather data in an indoor environment
    • Gijs suggested we re-use the lawn_tractor demo to avoid reinventing the wheel and strengthen cooperation with ROS-A on US side
  4. Long-term goal- Keep the ball rolling

    • To get more people interested, we should pick a topic, find a challenge and start working on that challenge. Especially areas like precision farming, vertical farming, and horticulture could be the ones which European side should focus on
    • Ilias has already worked on training a network to recognize plants exclusively trained from synthetic data which could be a spiritual successor for our next challenge
    • Perception challenge : identify crops using synthetic/real data

Actions
