When it comes to the future of farming, the University of Sydney has mastered the craft by developing a series of robots, which can change our approach to agriculture. They are testing robotic arms with soft grippers, which can be used one day for automatic harvesting or automatic branch trimming.
Their RIPPA solar powered robot can already cover large areas. It locates and exterminates weeds. Another advanced feature of it is that it is used for performing scans and detailed mapping. Using robots in the field of agriculture could be a good fit because there tend to be labor shortages with good agricultural skills.
In addition, an aging farming workforce will not be able to do the kind of jobs the machines are designed to. Robots have potential to operate 24/7. They just require one-time investment and further they complete a work in half the time what humans require. Because they are designed with the help of advanced technology, therefore they carry a quality to attract a new generation of workers back to the land.
