The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/

In recent years, research and development has been actively conducted by large corporations, venture companies, and researchers to realize agriculture using robots, IoT, and data. In a wide range of fields, such as paddy rice, open field vegetables, and fruit trees, there has been an increase in the number of efforts to develop demonstrations in actual agricultural fields. In this session, we will focus in particular on sensing technology, which is indispensable for data utilization, and together with three people who have actually worked together in demonstration trials over the past year, we will open up real discussions on the next step forward. (Participants in this session will receive a "Community Support" booklet compiled by the RIVANES Community Development Division with examples of demonstration projects in the community.)

We have prepared a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session. We are looking for audience members, so please join us. Please visit the conference website (see below).
