RFI Antennas Helping Out The Farm Robot

The Queensland University for Technology (QUT) Institute for Future Environments developed a robot prototype to help the agricultural sector with autonomous systems to make the farms of the future more productive, profitable, sustainable and safe.

With the help of RFI antennas, AgBot autonomously water crops and kill weeds each day without the farmer having to lift a finger. Once the robot is done ploughing the field, it returns back to its home to recharge via a solar energy storage system!

Using cameras, sensors, software and electronics, AgBot is able to navigate through a field, apply fertiliser, detect and classify weeds and kill weeds either mechanically or chemically.  It is designed to work in autonomous groups in both broad acre and horticultural crop management applications.

While only a prototype – RFI loves to be part of robot that will one day help to feed the world!
