Designers Julia Kaisinger, Katharina Unger and Stefan Riegbauer have designed an autonomous farm robot called the Agria as an eco-friendly machine suitable for small-scale farming.

The Agria is controlled by a remote computer or a smartphone to execute important tasks like sowing seeds and adding the right proportion of fertilizer. This farm robot also controls bugs, fungi and pests through infrared and UV light, and can examine the soil and plants for specific treatment.
