Nodar, an agricultural technology company, unveiled its autonomous farming solutions at CES. 

The company’s advanced stereo vision solution, AgriView, leverages Nvidia’s Jetson Orin platform - designed for edge AI and robotics - alongside Nodar’s own 3D-sensing software to create a “new generation of 3D-sensing solutions dedicated to autonomous farming.”

Nodar’s sensing software, Hammerhead, auto-calibrates two cameras in real time, keeping them steady and enabling precise readings from the equipment even over bumpy terrain. 

“This collaboration with Nvidia supports us in bringing our advanced stereo vision technology to the agricultural sector and modernizing sustainable farming practices,” said Leaf Jiang, Nodar’s CEO. “With the powerful capabilities of the Nvidia Jetson Orin platform, our AgriView solution is poised to redefine the standards of farming operations.”

The integration of Nvidia’s accelerated computing platform expands AgriView’s capabilities, including enhanced detection and navigation capabilities in “diverse and high-vibration” agricultural environments, high performance in low-visibility conditions and greater adaptability across a range of camera and sensor setups.

Nodar said its AgriView technology can be applied to various facets of farming automation, including precise and accurate spout alignment, sprayer alignment, autonomous routing, object detection, swath following and operation of autonomous harvesters and other large farming equipment.
