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.

Robots + Cannabis Farming

The simplest way that robotic technology can be used for cannabis farming is the trimming process. AI-powered robots are able to automate the trimming process, so that farmers are able to de-leaf buds quickly and effectively, saving countless hours of manual labor.

TerraClear Announces $6.1M Financing Round and Leadership Additions to Automate Rock Picking in Agriculture

TerraClear adds McIlwain to Board, Thompson as President, opens test lab in Idaho, and nearly doubles available cash

AgBots: The Fourth Agricultural Revolution, Ready to Take Over Farms

In a nutshell, by bringing artificial intelligence and around-the-clock activity, the robots will help optimize the yield of the farms far beyond what could humanly be possible. Maximizing the production while minimizing the costs in energy, water, time.

MiR500 Mobile Cobots Make Traffic Safer in Kverneland's Factory

"The robot saves at least five hours in transport time a week, and the working day is quieter and calmer," Broberg said. "I already take 15,000 to 17,000 steps a day in my job, so I definitely don't miss the walk to the pallet stacker."

Top Article for 2018 - Automating Agriculture: How Automation and Robotics Have Taken to the Fields

The technological advances in agriculture are not just to do with social media savvy cows - the global agricultural robots market was estimated to account for a market revenue of $2,927 million in 2016, but is expected to rocket to $11,050 million in 2023.

Agriculture Workforce Automation and Robots

Whether were talking about those who worked in flour mills or those who dealt with windmills, automated processes have always been on inventors minds.

Will Robots be the Future of Farming?

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.

Case Study: Prairie Robotics

The Spraybot delivered inch-accurate positioning and instantaneous heading. Its autonomous navigation had built-in obstacle selection and avoidance. It was designed to both detect and identify plants and rows and deliver spot spraying.
