According to Herbst, the agribusiness strategy partner is now talking to prospective clients about this solution.
"This was created in a week and is still in its infancy. There needs to be more thought and due diligence put into it but it's in both of our ambitions to get this working into deals. Agriculture is the new frontier for some of this new technology and our previous partnership worked well for this challenge," Herbst added.
"The win proves that the work that DiUS and CiBUS are doing and the discussions that we're having are relevant and are of value in the industry."
Both companies won a $10,000 prize for winning the challenge, which they have fully donated to the Flying Robot School program, an initiative that encourages rural children to pursue careers in STEM.
