Is a cooperation between universities possible in order to develop a method of measuring wood volume in standing forests using these robots?
My name is Mikołaj Walczak. I am a graduate with a MSc degree in forestry (Poznan University of Life Sciences, Poland).
After watching the possibilities of those robots my first thought was: would they manage to fly into a forest and measure dimensions of all trees?
With many of them at once it could be relatively fast.
Yet I do not have technical knowledge about robotics. I would look for support outside - at other universities.
My question is - do you at all consider cooperation between universities in terms of applying this technology in forestry? Would you be willing to lend/sell/hire/give some of them to work with?
Once I get some feedback I can then go back to my school and suggest a topic for a doctoral thesis.
Thank you in advance for a response.
