Autonomous Field Robots for the Agriculture of the Future
September 23, 2021
The field day "LANDNETZ meets Feldschwarm® - Agriculture of tomorrow, experience today" presents new digital applications in agriculture and the results of the Feldschwarm® growth core, which concludes with this event.
Since 2019, scientists from TU Dresden, together with the Saxon State Office for Environment, Agriculture and Geology (LfULG) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI, have been researching new technologies for area-wide wireless data transmission and networking as a fundamental prerequisite for Agriculture 4.0 as part of the LANDNETZ experimental field. At today's field day, the project partners present the current status of applications that have already been introduced at the Raitzen estate in Naundorf, Saxony.
"The combination of state-of-the-art mobile technologies with autonomous field robotics, as developed in the Feldschwarm® project, opens up new migration paths for resource-saving, highly efficient agricultural technology. Digitalization in agriculture thus becomes tangible in the truest sense of the word," said Institute Director Prof. Dr. Matthias Klingner.
