Robots and Oysters
A team at University of Maryland is using technology like robotics to help increase and improve productivity for oyster farmers. mechanical engineering professor, Miao Yu)
A team of University of Maryland researchers is using their wildly different expertise to help bring oyster farming into the 21st century, team leader Miao Yu is a mechanical engineering professor. “Our grant is a USDA sustainable agriculture system Grant. She says the goal is to use robotics and artificial intelligence to improve bottom culture, shellfish farming management. The information obtained that using the monitoring system will help farmers and instead how to plant the young oysters. More precisely. So this will help reduce losses due to seed mortality and therefore increase farm productivity” Oyster farmers also can map and monitor their crop inventory, so this will allow them to make predictions of future farm productivity and profitability.
