Chinese tech giant Huawei will deepen its partnership with leading Austrian drone maker Dronetech in 5G-powered smart farming. Their collaboration is entering a second phase called “Digital Sky.”Huawei will provide cloud computing services on top of 5G to support real-time artificial intelligence (AI) analysis. Meanwhile, Dronetech’s drones, equipped with high-resolution cameras and sensors, will survey the land and objects to capture images and data that will be processed by AI and provide instant findings to the users. The technology will help farmers detect small insects, monitor crop status, predict harvests and optimize the use of water, chemicals and pesticides.
