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...
