AAT injects fresh energy to agriculture intellectualised

Taiwan government has been injecting new technologies into agriculture production process, like utilising LED as artificial sunlight for indoor farming, and using image recognition technology on unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to spray fertiliser. As technology is becoming the core of agriculture success, Intellectual Property Rights plays a more crucial role. Take UAV as an example, manufacturers of UAV applied for patent successfully for "Positioning System and Observation Synchronization System" and "Locating Direction Data Analysis System and Method", and will showcase their UAV with these two patents in AAT. Agriculture intellectualisation not only happens in Taiwan, but also within the globe.
