ANELLO Photonics and Key Dollar Cab partner on agriculture


The companies aim to integrate silicon photonics-based gyroscope technology into agricultural machinery, to help farmers achieve greater precision and productivity in orchards with limited GPS availability

ANELLO Photonics, creator of the ANELLO SiPhOG (Silicon Photonics Optical Gyroscope), and Key Dollar Cab, an original equipment manufacturer and technology integrator focused on agriculture, have announced a partnership to apply ANELLO's optical gyroscope technology to enhancing positioning accuracy in orchards and other high-value-crop environments with limited GPS availability.

The companies say that this collaboration marks a significant milestone in the agricultural industry, as it combines ANELLO's expertise around silicon photonics, algorithms, and building complete positioning solutions with Key Dollar Cab's experience and knowledge of specialty agricultures' unique challenges and solutions. The partnership aims to address the growing demand for more robust and accurate positioning systems in orchards where precise navigation is crucial for optimising operations and maximising yield.

According to ANELLO Photonics, optical gyroscope technology offers several advantages over traditional positioning systems, including improved accuracy, reliability, and robustness in challenging agricultural environments such as orchards with dense foliage. By integrating ANELLO's technology and positioning solutions into Key Dollar Cab's agricultural machinery and equipment, the companies say that farmers will benefit from enhanced precision and efficiency in various orchard management tasks, including planting, spraying, fertilising, and harvesting.

“We are excited to collaborate with Key Dollar Cab to bring our advanced optical gyroscope technology to the agricultural sector,” said Mario Paniccia, CEO of ANELLO Photonics. “By leveraging our photonics expertise and AI-based solutions together with Key Dollar Cab's industry knowledge, we aim to empower farmers with innovative solutions that improve their productivity and sustainability in GPS-challenged environments.”

Jason Dohrmann, general manager of Key Dollar Cab, added: “At Key Dollar Cab, we are committed to leveraging cutting-edge technologies to address the evolving needs of precision agriculture. Partnering with ANELLO Photonics allows us to integrate state-of-the-art positioning technology into our agricultural equipment, providing farmers with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency in orchard management.”
