The Field Robot Event Wageningen give a foretaste of the precision agriculture of the future. Already, a small revolution took place. A new breed of robot will be able to achieve a rgande variety of agricultural tasks, as semmi, treat and monitor the evolution of cultures.Robots capable of performing such tasks completely independently? The Field Robot Event proves that it is possible! In 2007, Wageningen University has invited teams from schools and universities to compete in this annual outdoor competition of the single agricultural robots in the world. This year, attention should be paid to the robustness of navigation and its suitability for agriculture. The comp├ętittion is limited only by the imagination of participants: there is no restriction on the mechanical or software, only the result counts.
