Mixed reality of a farming landscape​

In the past, farmers would treat fields in a uniform manner. However, the advent of the Global Positioning System, coupled with precision farming technologies, now allows growers to collect data on a much smaller scale. This benefits farmers by allowing them to treat specific areas of a field according to its unique makeup. ​

In this view, a landscape containing our field was displayed on a kitchen table, similar to environment where many farmers and agronomists will meet to discuss farm management decisions.​

Using mixed reality, the farmer and agronomist can view and discuss at multiple scenarios without having to flip through bulky map books or flip through screens on a tablet computer. ​

Mixed reality also allows all parties access to specific parts of the data while collaborating from different locations or for data to be collected while in the field.
