          Guided by Prof. Wei Hsiang, Lai (Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics) and Prof. Chaur Shiuh, Young (Dept. of Accountancy), Earthgen Tech developed the first agricultural drone in Taiwan. It provides farmers with the advantage of introducing high-efficiency self-developed agricultural unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for pesticide spraying. The UAV has advantages that include uniformity and high spraying efficiency, and its atomizing nozzle can refine pesticide particle size to enhance absorbtion by crops, thus effectively reducing the amount of pesticide used. This has the potential to solve the serious problem of rural labor shortage and the Taiwan “Brain drain.” The development of a UAV team can provide rural jobs that require professional and highly technical skills to attract young people back to their Taiwan home. This technology also improves the efficiency and safety of farmers resulting in added value. Success achieved in this program it is proof of concept and will be possible to transfer it to other fields, thus creating a sustainable, friendly environment for Taiwan’s agricultural industry.
