Sustainable automation technologies and equipment are shaping the future of crop production.

Lidar News posted a story on AGROINTELLI, a developer of intelligent farming solutions, using Velodyne lidar sensors in production of its Robotti autonomous tool carriers.

The article has comments from AGROINTELLI CTO Tommy E. Madsen, saying:

“Velodyne’s lidar sensors are essential to helping Robotti start a new agri-tech era where autonomous implement carriers become commercially sustainable and integrated into daily farming operations.”

An article in Australasian Farmers’ & Dealers’ Journal noted that “Robotti supports a wide range of equipment and is able to perform highly accurate, site-specific agricultural operations including seedbed preparation, seeding, weeding, fertilizing, spraying and mowing.”

Environmental Engineering Tech posted an article on the news, which included comments from Erich Smidt, Velodyne Lidar’s Executive Director Europe.

“Robotti demonstrates how Velodyne sensors enable precision and safety in autonomous vehicles. Automation technologies like Robotti help address the shortage of qualified labor facing farms and the need to handle in-season cultivation without using crop protection products,” said Erich.

AETOSWire commented about the news on Twitter:
