Robots taking care of plants
The future of farming is here
A robot in the field will soon be a normal sight for farmers in the Netherlands. An automated harvesting machine is on its way. As this machine is being constructed, it will be the first robot to take care of plants in a commercial field in the world.
A few years ago, before this project was initiated, a large group of researchers from the Wageningen University (WU) and the Rijksoverheid (the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture) got together to discuss the role of robots in agriculture. In the end, the researchers decided to build a new robot that could care for plants in a commercial field.
This robot is the result of this decision and it is called the Automated Agriculture Robot (AAR). The robot has been constructed by a team of researchers from Wageningen University and the Rijksoverheid.
AAR is not yet fully automated. For the moment, it has to be operated by the farmer and the robot still needs to be programmed. The robot is equipped with a camera that takes pictures of the plants and a sensor that measures their height. The robot will then decide which plants to harvest.
The AAR robot is able to harvest only the flowers and fruit from the plants. This means that the leaves will be left behind. The leaves will be used to feed the plants. This means that the AAR robot is only a robot that can harvest.
The AAR robot has a goal to harvest 10% of the crop in a commercial field. This is a significant percentage compared to the harvest of conventional robots.
The AAR robot is the result of a research project called the Smart Harvesting Robot (SHR). The researchers decided to build a harvesting robot that could harvest the plants.The researchers also decided to use a small vehicle instead of a tractor to move the robot around the field.
In the past, the researchers had tried to develop a harvesting robot that could harvest a lot of plants. In this case, a harvesting robot that could harvest 100% of the plants in a field would have been an important milestone. However, the researchers realised that this was not possible with the technology available at that time.
The researchers realised that they had to first build a robot that could harvest a lot of plants before they could decide to build a robot that could harvest 100% of the plants in a field.
In the beginning, the researchers used the time they had before the AAR robot would be ready to do a field trial. They used this time to test the harvesting robot. The researchers put this harvesting robot in a field in the Netherlands and they used it to harvest some plants.
The harvesting robot was successful in harvesting a lot of plants in this field. The researchers realised that it would be possible to use this harvesting robot to harvest a large number of plants in a field.
The researchers realised that they could use this harvesting robot to harvest a significant percentage of the crop in a commercial field.
The researchers decided that it would be best to use the same robot that had been used to harvest plants in a field. The researchers knew that it was the best harvesting robot available. The researchers also decided to use a small vehicle instead of a tractor to move the harvesting robot around the field.
This decision to use the same harvesting robot was also motivated by the fact that the harvesting robot had been tested in a field. The researchers knew that the harvesting robot had been tested in a field where there was a lot of variation in the crops. The researchers were certain that the harvesting robot would be successful when it was used to harvest a lot of plants in a field.
In the case of the AAR robot,
