I’m not sure what the best way to go in regards to real time sensing or a delayed approach to give the machine time to process the images. I was thinking about stopping the machine for each picture to try and prevent shaking in the images as most farmland is bumpy. Then I though about one of those gimbals that DJI do to stabilise images on drones and even motorbikes/handhelds? Not sure if that would stop motion blur with sharp movements. Do the pics need to be sharp? Could the images be blurred as part of the dataset? I think this might effect accuracy?
If the machine was large with solar panels I think it could take it’s time and stop for each picture. If it’s small and light with just batteries maybe it could spray in real time coming back to home for charging up. In my application taking days to spray a 30 acres field would be just fine.
