Get introduced to agricultural robots at ducksize
Which agriculture robots are available?
There are brilliant agriculture robots shown, however unfortunately many only a 'prototype' and are not yet commercial available. Therefore, ducksize created an overview where you can filter on the maturity state.
The functionality per agriculture robot is completely different from each-other. For example, there are weeding robots and fruit picking robots. And the characteristics per robot als differ on many other point. You can think about track width, power source and many more.

A unique video shot, but what we will see more in the future: The tractor next to the robot in the field.
On this picture, more that 60 years of 'tractor' are capture. What is the dominant factor? For which specific task will we see change to robots?

Described with many photos and videos, discover the ins and outs of the adventure of Doorgrond with the Agrointelli Robotti.
Key drivers to create agriculture robots
Executing work by robots is ongoing on many places. Simply think of a biscuit that you eat, 99% sure it's made by machines. Technical evolution and radical innovations are enabling robot development for agriculture. The key drivers for agriculture robots are:
Reduction of use of chemicals
Save labour costs
Reduce soil compaction
Kiss the ground: Inspiration for robots
This movie is a great inspiration to understand some basics about why and how to treat the soil well. This movie shows two main drivers:
The solution for global warming
Economical improvement for farmer
Kiss the ground is a movie that shows the possibilities by impressive results from various projects around the world. And because it's making the effect of taking care of the soil, tillage and soil compaction extremely visible, at least it can be an inspiration to reflect on the way of farming and treating the ground in your area.
