National Centre for Precision Farming

Robotics Interest Group

Focusing upon agricultural robotics as an emerging precision farming discipline which, appropriately augmented with developments in intelligent processing, communications, global positioning, sensing, the Internet of Things and Internet, ‘Cloud’- based data support services, can be seen to be offering a significant platform for innovation and enterprise and a new generation of agricultural robotic capability.

It is a sector of wider robotic research and development that requires particularly strong stakeholder involvement in the design of robotic systems, with appropriate attention to standardisation of common platform components, interconnection and interfacing features while providing scope for accommodating application-specific sensors and actuators.
