Launch: Food Grants Program | Digital Farmhand Pacific Islands

The Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) at the University of Sydney received funding from the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s (DFAT) innovationXchange (iXc) to undertake a pilot program to demonstrate the Digital Farmhand in the Pacific Islands.

This project was led by Professor Salah Sukkarieh and his team, and was initiated through the LAUNCH Food Grants Program, to explore how sensing, robotic and artificial intelligence (AI) technology, in the form of the Digital Farmhand platform, could assist smallholder farmers in the Pacific Island nations of Fiji and Samoa in improving their agricultural productivity and in turn their food and nutrition security.
