Significant advances in future farm productivity will be enabled by robotics and autonomous systems... Production advances will be by a step-change in productivity through the use of many small autonomous robots that operate within a whole-farm optimisation context... In the short paper, we describe our current work that addresses weed maintenance and crop intelligence...

Photo of Andrew and Jocelyn Bate at proof-of-concept trials.. Andrew and Jocelyn Bate look to the future of grain growing with an early vision of a prototype agricultural robot undergoing proof-of-concept trials on their family's property near Emerald, Queensland... Andrew said the emphasis on technology that allows the robots to function as a cooperative swarm has already led researchers to develop a "docking and filling" system that enables the AgBots to automatically refuel...

Grain production heads back to the future with robots and drones (GRDC Updates).. The future of grain production - including the use of robotic technology and drones will captivate growers and advisers at the upcoming Northern Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Grains Research Updates... Mr Bate has been driving the development of robotic technology along with partner Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) and will provide growers and advisers with an insight into robotics in grain production, including what's ready now and where development is heading...

Luke recognised as grains industry rising star.. Mr Minogue said the Emerging Leader Award, voted on by the GRDC Regional Panels, recognised the efforts and commitment of a chosen researcher, adviser, grower or other industry participant... "His research has largely looked to increase the grain production and profitability for growers and reduce the risks associated with non-cereal crop production," said Mr Minogue, of Barmedman (NSW)...

Following this trend and current R&D activities worldwide, it is envisaged that this technology will also soon have a significant impact in agricultural practices... Robots can be used for tasks related to field and crop management enabling new management practices and data collection leading to further advances in PA. Like internet and mobile phone technologies a decade ago it is hard to envisage the full potential of having this technology deployed can bring... In order to this, there is a need to develop a framework for assessment of autonomy, regulations and procedures for certification...
