AgRobots is a specialist, half-day workshop dealing with research and development in robotics applied to precision farming and with Anglo-Japanese collaboration. The latter is occasioned by the visit to Harper Adams University College by Professor Noboru Noguchi, Professor for Vehicle Robotics, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan. Professor Noguchi will lead the workshop on the subject of Robotic Farming Systems, with particular attention to the use of multiple robots.
The workshop will be of interest to specialists in robotics and researchers in applying robotics to precision farming.
Please register for the event via the IAgrE website.
