A team of high-powered scientists working out of the University of Lincoln in the UK have managed to create an exceptionally high-tech agricultural robot that is essentially an upgraded and refined version of a robotic platform that was initially devised at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences.
This particular agricultural robot is capable of making use of Cosmic-Ray Soil Moisture Observing Systems to be able to assess soil moisture in order to make it possible to create a map of moisture distribution in the soil, something that can enable farmers to optimize the manner in which they water their fields. The robot can also be fitted with other sensors to detect crop issues.
This agricultural robot is a great example of the value of robotics in making farming cheaper, more efficient and more targeted.
