Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • UAV aided fruit picking strategy for emergency harvesting   Order a copy of this article
    by Shuping Pang, Jun Yang, Guilu Lu, Xuan Wang, Yunpeng Wang, Junhao Geng, Huibo Bi 
    Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a new type of emergency situation which features the long lasting nature and rigid restrictions in human activities. In agriculture, the pandemic has severely restricted the fruit harvesting activities due to their labour-intensive characteristic. Hence, in this paper, we proposes an unmanned aerial vehicles aided approach to speed up the fruit picking process in both normal and emergency situations (such as the current COVID-19 pandemic or extreme weather conditions). The fruit picking process is modelled as an assignment problem and the time cost in both travelling and picking actions is taken into consideration. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm remarkably improves the efficiency of the fruit picking process.
    Keywords: fruit harvesting; unmanned aerial vehicles; assignment problem; simulation of urban mobility; SUMO.
