robotics in agriculture

conference documents only in german language!

In times of a growing world population consistent production areas require a more productive agriculture. At the same time, cost pressures increase by the global market. In addition, the availability of skilled labor will continue to decline in the future. As a consequence, in agriculture, therefore increasing automation is observed. Despite the diverse and often complex needs automation solutions in agriculture have an enormous potential. Roboters are a key technology that can provide increasing productivity and quality in times of scarce resources.
