Farm robots

From

Introduction

An agricultural robot is a robot deployed for agricultural purposes. The main area of application of robots in agriculture today is at the harvesting stage. Emerging applications of robots or drones in agriculture include weed control, cloud seeding, planting seeds, harvesting, environmental monitoring and soil analysis. According to Verified Market Research, the agricultural robots market is expected to reach $11.58 billion by 2025. Automating agricultural tasks such as weeding and pest control have the potential to unleash large amounts of human productivity.

Challenges

Agricultural tasks require a wide variety of manipulations, transformations, and even some object-recognition.

Approaches


Initial goal is to build a versatile general-purpose platform for solar-electric and solar-hydraulic-electric agricultural automation, with specific manipulators and tasks to follow.
