CASC is a multi-institutional initiative led by Carnegie Mellon Robotics
Institute to comprehensively address the needs of specialty agriculture
focusing on apples and horticultural stock. CASC will develop methods to
improve production efficiency, identify threats from pests and diseases,
and, detect, monitor and respond to food safety hazards. We expect
advances from the integration of robotics technology and plant science. CASC
is funded by the USDA Cooperative State Research, Education & Extension
Service with matching support from industry and the Pennsylvania
Infrastructure Technology Alliance.
