Precision Agriculture: Pineapple Plant Counting with Drone

Great Giant Pineapple Co. (GGP) manages about 33,000 hectares of pineapple plantation. With this gigantic area, it is impossible for GGP to exactly know the number of pineapples in their field. Whereas, they need to know the exact number in order to optimize their tin production  to package the pineapples. To solve this problem, we are collaborating with GGP to develop deep learning system for counting pineapple plants in GGP plantation. The challenge of this research is how to integrate deep learning system with GGP drone system to produce precise counting of pineapple plants.
