Technology for sustainability: Meet Tarzan, the machine inspecting crops

If farmers can spot diseases in their crops sooner, they can avoid using chemicals that are unhealthy for people and planet. Technology can help them. At Georgia Tech, a team of researchers has designed a machine that will be able to use its 3D printed claws to grab onto a wire suspended over the crops and swing over the crops. It will then take measurements and pictures of each plant with its built-in camera while suspended. The researchers plan to test the machine, which they named “Tarzan”, at a soybean field this coming summer.
