Automated Agricultural Helpers
Ripe for Robots
Inventor and engineer David Dorhout from Des Moines, Iowa. In his vision, a whole swarm of his little agri-crabs tends the field and even communicates among each other.
The first agrirobot-prototypes are already being tested: “Bonirob” can navigate a maize field and scan plants....
... Other prototypes have a bird's eye view.
Precision is the key to efficient agriculture.
