The Importance of GRSS Student Grand Challenge for promoting UAV Applications in Brazil
The Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) promote on a yearly basis the Student Grand Challenge. It is intended to engage students and young professionals in solving a complex engineering problem within the scope of GRSS and other sister societies (e.g., Aerospace and Electronic Systems, Antennas and Propagation, Ocean Engineering, Computer, Microwave Theory and Techniques). Among five selected projects worldwide, one was selected from Brazil. The Grand Challenge consists on a joint program encompassing several small projects being conducted by students and professionals from UFMS, UCDB and UDESC. All the projects are related with the development of UAVs and innovative machine learning methods applied to both precision forest and farming. The developed UAVs and preliminary results achieved in both precision forest and farming applications will be also presented in this session. Sponsored by GRSS, CNPq, CAPES.
