Robotics and automation are set to have a major impact on the global agriculture industry, driving new business models and disrupting existing value chains. Although agriculture has historically been slow to digitize, advances in AI and machine vision, alongside increasing investment into the field, are accelerating the industry, creating numerous opportunities.
Dr Dent will focus on:
- The current state of global agriculture
- Key technology trends in the field of agricultural robotics
- Enabling technologies in agricultural robotics
- Case study discussions of autonomous tractors and robotic fresh fruit picking.
