Webinar Title: Agricultural Robotics: Can Technology Innovation Awaken a Sleeping Giant?
Date: Thursday 18 November 2021
Presenter: Dr Michael Dent, Senior Technology Analyst - IDTechEx

Global agriculture is facing some big challenges. Farmers' margins are getting thinner, and the increasing costs and scarcity of labour are threatening harvests across the world. With this backdrop, attention is increasingly turning the promise of robotics and automation to boost global agriculture, improving efficiencies, and safeguarding global food security.
Despite this, agriculture has historically proven stubbornly difficult to automate, with the progress of robotics and automation often lagging behind other industries, such as manufacturing and mining. Much of this stems from the difficulty in adapting robotics to the unpredictable and difficult terrain of a farm, alongside the prohibitively high costs of robotics to an often low-margin industry.
However, this is beginning to change. As technologies around autonomous navigation and positioning are maturing, they are beginning to become a commercially viable option for farmers. A range of robots are being developed for a variety of farming tasks, including weeding, harvesting, and seeding. These robots come in a diverse array of shapes and sizes, from large autonomous tractors to swarms of small robots that can rapidly cover a field.
In this webinar, IDTechEx Senior Technology Analyst Dr Michael Dent will discuss the emerging technologies that are invigorating the agricultural robotics industry, exploring how the next ten years might evolve.
This webinar will include:
  • A summary of the key issues facing global agriculture
  • The emerging applications of agricultural robotics
  • An overview of some of the key developments in the field
  • A discussion of the key enabling technologies for agricultural robots
  • An evaluation of the challenges and barriers facing the industry
This webinar shares some of the research for the brand new IDTechEx report, "Agricultural Robotics Market 2022-2032".
