Automation and robotics: A growth industry

Thanks to robotics technology, the agricultural industry has made substantial advancements in recent years. This is particularly the case in areas such as livestock, where up to a third of farmers rely on robot-supported systems. From automated cleaning and milking to quality control of milk, for example, robotics has become an integral part of the livestock industry.

There is still great potential for future growth and further adoption of automatic systems in agricultural production. For example, robot technology has only just broken ground in plant cultivation. But considering the options for automatic harvesting, weeding, cutting, sowing, spraying, sorting and packaging, it is clear that there is still a long way to go, with a great deal of opportunity along the way.

The 2nd VDI Automation and Robotics in Agriculture conference is the ideal event in which to discuss the current market situation as well as the potential for future opportunities. Find out about the benefits and challenges automation and robotics present and see which solutions can be deployed in your business. Get together with international colleagues and industry experts and learn from one another to further your own development.
