Artificial intelligence drones help identify diseases in UK vineyards

A consortium developing robotic technology for the UK viticulture industry to help identify diseases, precise pesticide treatments and support pruning and harvesting has announced its first project.

The first development is a free-flying drone powered by an artificial intelligence (AI) engine that identifies any vineyard without the use of GPS and automatically maps the vines using a high-definition camera.

After mapping the environment, the goal is to program the flight path of the drone to map the chronology of the vines and identify early signs of disease or nutritional deficiencies and report them directly to the vineyard manager.
