New Drive Developments for Autonomous Agriculture Technology

The agricultural sector is undergoing significant changes and is modernising. To take the strain off farmers, many robots are being developed to automate tasks. What specific technical characteristics should ag machinery manufacturers take into account to assist farmers?

Graze Introduces Next Generation of Intelligent, Fully Autonomous Electric Commercial Mowing

New model futurizes lawn mowing care, quality and efficiency to target a $53B Market opportunity, $19M already in pre-order

Case Study - Asparagus Picking Agricobot

ST Robotics has been making and selling low cost bench top robots for 3 decades. Along the way we have been involved in a wide range of applications and projects. One major application area is agriculture.

Trends in robotics: Cobots, agribots and medical robots

From recreational robots such as drones, to critical operational robots in the medical field, robotic technology is changing our daily lives.

Sowing a Precise Crop - How Micromotors Can Be Used in the Agricultural Industry

Agriculture is a demanding and developing industry. One farming tractor can now do in a day what used to take 100 people, a week. While the industry is literally, reaping the benefits of demand, this does provoke concerns over pesticide use and soil health.

IDTechEx Research - Agricultural Robots and AI: A Question of When and Not If

Seeing, localising, and taking plant-specific intelligent action are no longer the exclusive realm of humans. Machines have demonstrated the technical viability and the emphasis has long shifted to the finer details of ROI, reliability, business model, etc.

Agriculture Robots Helping Their Way Out in Combatting the Covid-19 Pandemic

The use of agricultural robots has significantly increased during this pandemic state, especially to boost the production of food grains, meet the cumulative demands of people for food, and fight against the dangerous COVID-19 disease.

Age Of Agriculture Robots: Fruit-Picking Robots And Drones To Take Over Farms

What's more, from shepherding to nursery planting, robots have already made their way into the agriculture industry. The death of skilled labor is another factor that propels the demand for agricultural robots.

Robotics in Agriculture: an Alternative to Traditional Farming

A wide range of technologies can enable the transition of agricultural robots into the field. Some technologies will need to be developed specifically for agriculture, while other technologies already developed for other areas could be adapted to the agricultural domain.

Motiv Robotics Announces Enhanced RoboMantis® Robot

Motiv Robotics announces the availability of the RoboMantis robot with enhanced capabilities at iROS 2019 in Macau.

Small Robot Helps Space Plants for Greenhouses and Nurseries.

Ag businesses have also increasingly relied on AI and robots to help perform certain necessary tasks. These robots are typically specialized and designed for one kind of job. One example of this is Harvest Automation's container-moving robot.

The Age of Autonomy: Robotic Solutions for the Horticulture Industry

We call our hero BigTop, an autonomous, mobile robot with the ability to move 250 pots an hour and have a run time of 16 hours on interchangeable batteries.

Husky UGV Turns Over a New Leaf

The modern-day desire for efficiency through automation has spread its way into every industry. Even in the agriculture sector, unmanned ground vehicles are being considered to supplement work with crops and improve farm management.

Robots in the Vineyard

In France's Bordeaux region, robots ensure that the wine is organically good. They autonomously eliminate grass and weeds between the vines, making pesticides unnecessary. To enable the robots to navigate the hilly terrain, the developers took some cues from Mars rovers.

Advanced Intelligent Systems to Showcase Autonomous Custom Robot at Cultivate'19

BigTop solves the repetitive and laborious task of moving and spacing pots of different sizes and weights in greenhouses and nurseries. BigTop can move up to nine plant pots at a time and then place the plants securely on its rotating robotic platform base.
