Robots on the Farm

Roland Piquepaille writes, "Robots designed to help farmers have been built before but this time, engineers from the University of Warwick have chosen to develop robots that will reduce farm labor costs. In recent months, they've built a robotic mushroom picker, an inflatable conveyor belt and a grass cutting robot that might also be used by golf course owners." For more info on the story, see Roland's blog and the University of Warwick news release. See also our previous robot farming stories.
