Abstract

This book provides a comprehensive review of key advances in the use of robots in agriculture.
Chapters summarise developments in location and guidance systems, GPS technologies, machine vision, navigation, actuation, communication and control technologies. The second part of the book discusses deploying these techniques to save labour, improve precision, speed and efficiency in agricultural operations.
Chapters review the state of the art on the use of agricultural robots in planting, crop monitoring, spraying, irrigation and weed management.
