The Australian vegetable industry invests in Robotics

Leaders in the field of robotics demonstrate the latest developments in robotics for vegetable producers.  This is not science fiction: the technology is in the pipeline and the user timeframe is in the next few years. Robotics encompass a whole spectrum of technologies from mechatronics to artificial intelligence. Robotics means labour-saving tasks – for example, weeding that uses a system that can discriminate crops from weeds by colour.  Moreover, such systems can operate 24/7.
