Weed & Feed
May 17, 2019
Watch teams of agricultural innovators from universities, high schools and industry showcase autonomous robots that manage crops! These agBOTS navigate rows of corn, identify plants, deliver fertilizer, eradicate weeds and provide real-time observation.
Mining for Microbes & Microfauna
May 18, 2019
We challenged teams to create an agBOT that can gather soil samples and prepare them for diagnostic evaluation of microorganisms. Watch these autonomous robots accurately maneuver to soil sections while providing real-time observation of movement, location and collection.
