Agriculture robots are getting deployed to do farming work, from seeding and harvesting to plant inspection. These robots use specially designed grippers and 3D cameras to determine which crops are ripe, and Artificial Intelligence helps machines learn to harvest.
According to Research and Markets, the agricultural robots market is expected to grow at the rate of 33.5% CAGR by 2026. Since farming robots have significantly minimized human labor, the demand for these machines is surging.
In the video below, you can see 7 agriculture and horticulture robots in action, such as Virgo, a robot that can pick greenhouse tomatoes, and a cucumber harvesting robot.
The primary factor responsible for increasing the projected agricultural yield in the coming years is automation. The work of robots will be accompanied by satellite agriculture and the use of real-time data to facilitate decision-making.
