The fossil fuel-free Aigen Element helps farmers reduce chemicals in food, and improve human and planetary health.
We need to focus more on autonomous machines in agriculture - what machines are on the market, what are the advantages and why farmers should adopt this technology. The awareness has already improved the recent years, but we need to do better.
Pilot project between ABB Robotics and non-profit organization Junglekeepers demonstrates potential of robotics and Cloud technology in reversing deforestation. Using solar power, YuMi® automates seed planting, making reforestation in the Amazon faster and more efficient.
The 2023 landscape season is officially underway! A handful of Scythe partners in Texas and Florida recently began mowing with M.52. Here are a few things they did to successfully onboard M.52.
Embedded vision has been transforming agriculture by enabling autonomous mobile robots to 'see' their environment for the purposes of picking & harvesting, plowing, weed & bug detection, etc.
Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant products applied in small doses in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful.
For those of us with boots on the ground in the industry, we recognize that the commercial farming sector has quickly become the target industry for some of the most innovative and exciting technological advances of our generation.
Whether you're designing a fully autonomous, semi-autonomous, or remote-controlled mower, ensure that you are up to date on the safety standards and regulations that apply to your application.
Backed by Amazon's Climate Pledge Fund, Hippo Harvest's growing process uses robotics and greenhouses to reduce food waste and land use.
25 robots in the field at World FIRA 2023: the world's largest demo and exhibition area for autonomous agricultural solutions
Robots and autonomous solutions for a more resilient agriculture have now entered the farms. For its 7th edition, the World FIRA is getting a makeover and inviting industry players into the fields, around 20 robot demos on 2 hectares of cultivated plots.
Using an in-expensive drone, they can map a full quarter section of land in about 20 minutes, providing a real-time map that is able to instantly show variability and allow them to quickly identify problem areas and determine solutions.
The agricultural industry are continually looking for ways to increase output, improve efficiency and reduce waste. This has led to robots and automation becoming an integral part of farming and food production processes.
The marriage of AI and agriculture is real and it is promising. Now, more than ever, it appears that the future of farming may well lie in artificial intelligence technologies.
A number of vendors were displaying robotic solutions at Greentech this year. These solutions ranged from newly introduced mobile harvesting robots, to more traditional stationary robots used for processes like transplanting, grading, and sorting.
It's expected that solar energy products will become more prevalent across several industries, including agriculture. Below, let's explore what kinds of new solar technologies are helping to farm agricultural fields.

Image processing opens up a wide range of possibilities for the automation of modern agriculture - but what to do when only a small budget is available? That is where the uEye XLS comes in. With the launch of these super-small industrial cameras, even price-sensitive applications and volume projects become feasible. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 7 mm, the compact cameras offer excellent imaging characteristics without excessive heat generation, making them a perfect fit for embedded vision applications in agricultural machinery and equipment. The industrial cameras comply with the vision standard and are available with Micro-B connectors and with or without C/CS or S-mount lens holders, further increasing their adaptability to different agricultural environments. Thanks to these features, the cameras offered by IDS Imaging Development Systems lower the barriers to entry and make it easier to explore the potential of vision technology to optimize agricultural processes.
