BBC Publishes Article on UK Researchers' Work with Drones and Cattle

January 22, 2021

Jesse Hoagg, Michael Sama and Josh Jackson have been developing a way for farmers to autonomously monitor cattle using drones.

Jesse Hoagg, Donald and Gertrude Lester Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering; Michael Sama, associate professor in the Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering with a joint appointment in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Josh Jackson, assistant professor in the Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, were featured in an article by the BBC for their research involving unmanned aerial vehicles--otherwise known as drones--for monitoring cattle. 

Hoagg, Sama and Jackson have been diligently working on a noninvasive health monitoring approach using drones that would provide farmers with a way to remotely and autonomously check on the location and health of each cow and allow them to address cattle health and safety issues much sooner.
