Hands Free Hectare - study into the feasibility of using open source drone technology to automate field agriculture

Lead Participant: Precision Decisions Limited


The Hands Free Hectare aims to produce the first crop in the world to be grown completely autonomously -

from establishment to harvest, no humans will enter the field. The project will modify existing farm machinery

models to utilise control systems developed from open-source data, providing a low-cost route to on-farm

machine control.
