The Future of Farming: GPS Sensors
via Fast.Co:


FARMERS CAN CONTROL WHERE THEIR CATTLE AND SHEEP GRAZE FROM A COMPUTER WITH THIS EMERGENT TECHNOLOGY. A recent interview published by Nicola Twilley and Geoff Manaugh profiles a USDA scientist named Dean M. Anderson, whose research focuses on virtual fencing, a concept by which farmers could control their livestock using GPS-controlled electronic sensors (a bit like an electronic dog collar). The technology has the potential to make farms more environmentally sustainable, by allowing farmers to manage where their cattle graze, and to cut down on the manual labor involved with rebuilding fences.
