Could robots become helpers in future farms?

QUT is working on small, lightweight robots that are part of a new generation of agricultural machines. These robots are designed for getting rid of weeds, applying vital nutrients to crops, and gathering data to help farmers make informed decisions about their crops.

The AgBot II is an innovative agricultural robot prototype fully designed and fabricated by QUT researchers and engineers with significant co-funding from the Queensland Government. AgBot II forms part of a new generation of crop and weed management machinery, intended to work in autonomous groups across both broadacre and horticultural crop management applications. The robot's cameras, sensors, software and other electronics enable it to navigate through a field, apply fertiliser, detect and classify weeds, and manage weeds either mechanically or chemically, providing a tool for farmers to help reduce operational costs and efficiency losses.
