A recent article discussed the high demand For Python-driven machine learning (ML) tools to boost robot farming.
Blue River Technology’s See & Spray machine is utilizing the advanced ML (machine learning) framework PyTorch and computer vision to train robotic crop sprayers to map and find weeds as they pass across a field. This enhanced technology uses a superior-resolution camera to instruct robots to spray herbicide and destroy weeds without harming crops. Thus, using Python-powered ML tools will help farmers increase yield and maintain food quality.
PyTorch, a Python programming language, is an open-source deep-learning context created to be modular and flexible for research. The library enables creators to install, build, and complement novel AI models speedily.
“PyTorch was used to train its See & Spray robotic farming system owing to its flexibility and the fact that it was easy to debug,” said Chris Padwick, Director of Computer Vision and Machine Learning at Blue River Technology. “New team members can quickly get up to speed, and the documentation is thorough, and the framework gives us the ability to support production model workflows and research workflows simultaneously.”

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
