Deepfield Robotics is preparing to showcase its robotics and automation technologies for the agriculture market at the Agrilevante event, in Italy, according to an article on RoboticsandAutomationNews.com.
The company is a startup established by industrial giant Bosch, and has a variety of solutions for the burgeoning precision agriculture market.
- BoniRob – a robot which can roam the fields and perform a wide variety of tasks normally done by a human farmer;
- Deepfield Connect – a monitoring system for more perishable plants such as asparagus and strawberry; and
- Automated Field Testing – which uses something the company calls “4D scan” to collect and analyse data on large fields of crops.
The company is also developing a robotic, automated and internet of things-connected systems for people who just use their own household gardens as mini-farms, perhaps mostly for their own requirements.
