WG Automation and field robotics

Agriculture is in a state of flux. The Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy takes an active role in the research of agricultural questions and in the design of future agriculture. Hereby, automation in agriculture attaches particular importance because the substitution of chemicals can often just be done by technical solutions. Additionaly, the use of technology must be affordable to find appropriate distribution and the products must be available for everybody. Therefore, our focus lies in the research of automation-technical solutions on the one hand regarding the future feasability. On the other hand, we research on and improve needed sensors, especially regarding affordable automation solutions. For example, we investigate how expensive technology and sensors can be replaced by minimalist technological components. Thus, the programming effort and the development of embedded systems increase.
