AGRICULTURAL ROBOTS: THE NEEDS AND LIMITATIONS IN LARGE SCALE COMMERCIALIZATION

Rushali Pant, Jyoti Joshi, Pushpendra Kumar, Pravin P Patil.

Abstract
Although agricultural field operations are complex, diverse, labor-intensive, and crop-directed,
agricultural productivity has significantly and continuously increased over the centuries as a result of
mechanization, intensification, and more recently, with the introduction of automation. The advent of
agricultural robots has the potential to raise the quality of fresh produce, lower production costs, reduce the
drudgery of manual labor, and, in some parts of the world, to compensate for the lack of workers in some
agricultural sectors. A key feature of agricultural robots is that they must operate in unstructured environments
without impairing the quality of work currently achieved. The main limiting factors are production
inefficiencies and the lack of economic justification. Machines will inevitably become smarter and fully
autonomous; it is only a matter of time. Increases in labor costs and the demand less arduous work, the demands
for better quality of life and higher quality produce and the progressively decreasing cost of increasingly
powerful computers, electronics and sensors, are all promoting the economic feasibility of agricultural
autonomous robot systems. This paper presents a review of state of art robotic technologies and supporting tasks
for applications in agricultural processes including sowing, ploughing, harvesting, etc

Key words: Agriculture, Mobile robots, Tracking, Sowing.
