Key points:

  • Agricultural Robot Applications. Agricultural robots automate slow, repetitive and dull tasks for farmers, allowing them to focus more on improving overall production yields.
  • Some of the most common robots in agriculture are used for: Harvesting and picking
  • Agribot is a robot designed for agricultural purposes.
  • It performs the elementary functions involved in farming i.e. ploughing the field, sowing of seeds and covering the seeds with soil.
  • The robot is autonomous and provides the facility for optional switching of the ploughing system when required.
  • An agricultural robot or agribot is a robot deployed for agricultural purposes. The main area of application of robots in agriculture is at the harvestingstage.
