Automation of agricultural machinery

Efficient production of agricultural products is a requirement for large-scale agriculture to manage food shortages due to population growth and shortages of farming workers. Epson‘s IMU(Inertial measurement unit ) used in combination with GNSS(Global Navigation Satellite System) can accurately measure objects as it moves in three dimensional space. This is a key technology in precision agriculture for increasing efficiency and advancing the progress of automated and unmanned operation.
