Bridging gaps in production agriculture: advancement in Robotics and Automation
Agricultural production is challenged by world food demand, the need to reduce agriculture's environmental footprint, the shortage of labor, and unprecedented variations in weather patterns. These stressors are accelerating the pace of innovation in automation and robotic systems which have benefited from the advancements made in machine vision, sensors and actuators, artificial intelligence (AI), and human-robot interactions.
This symposium will provide a space where academia, industry, funding agencies, and other stakeholders can exchange knowledge on emerging trends and identify challenges along with opportunities in the fields of automation and robotics in agriculture.
The symposium will be held on Monday, 22 July 2024 in Manhattan, KS, USA, in conjunction with the 16th International Conference on Precision Agriculture.
Registrants of the 16th International Conference on Precision Agriculture can add a registration to the symposium to their order at no additional cost.
