Whether we're talking about those who worked in flour mills or those who dealt with windmills, automated processes have always been on inventors' minds.
The robotic industry is estimated to be worth $2.75 billion in farming with a projected annual growth rate of over 20% a year until 2022. We can expect this industry to eventually reach a market capitalization of $13 billion.
Ongoing advances in numerous fields, including LED and sensor technology, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, is enabling farm owners and managers to meet the increasing demands on pricing, efficiency and feeding a growing global population.
The ground-mounted system installed by JKB Energy located in Kettleman City, California, is the second largest net-metered solar project in PG&E territory and has a projected annual savings of $435,490
Autonomous equipment technology will tackle the growing concern of labor shortages while boosting productivity and ecomonical savings, which will bring higher yields. The technology will allow for true 24/7 operations ...
Though a pump can fail due to age and use, the reality is that most are murdered, snatched from their prime with much life left in them. The culprit is cavitation and it sends warning signs but most are ignored.
Cambridge researchers have developed what is believed to be the first robotic lettuce leaf peeling system of its kind.
if health and safety is paramount in your workplace, your workers will know, and this will affect their work. They will feel secure, will feel part of a team that is cared about (as opposed to being a simple commodity), and you will also be able to attract the best staff.
With the rising shortage of skilled workforce in agriculture, there's a growing need for robotisation to perform labour-intensive and repetitive tasks in greenhouses. Enter SWEEPER.
Nick Williams - Reporter, Milwaukee Business Journal: Golden Angels will have a fund committed to the presenting companies. In 2017, Golden Angels Investors dedicated nearly $1 million for agtech startups pitching at the event.
New service can seamlessly integrate with any foodservice operation or support year-round CSA programs--no farmland or additional staff required
The farmer can ill afford having a device that he cannot depend on, is unsuitable for use in sunlight, breaks often or doesn't communicate reliably.
Farming is one of the areas in which smart robots would revolutionize the ways in which it has been done till now. Governments, tech companies, and farming industry have been designing robots that would bring efficiency in the farming.
Using Motorleaf's artificial intelligence and machine-learning algorithms, the digital agronomist software can acquire data from indoor growing conditions. In turn, the algorithms learn growing patterns in the greenhouse, which then can predict the size of future harvests.
Animals feed on silage throughout the winter, but farmers must follow certain rules to make sure that the fodder is stored in a correct and safe manner.

maxon launches the next generation of positioning controllers - the EPOS4. A high performance module with detachable pin headers and two different power ratings. With a connector board, the modules can be combined into a ready-to-install compact solution. Suitable for efficient and dynamic control of brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors and encoders up to 750 W continuous power and 1500 W peak power. The modular concept also provides for a wide variety of expansion options with Ethernet-based interfaces, such as EtherCAT or absolute rotary encoders.
