One major use for mobile robotics technology is inside agricultural scenarios. Brazil's vast territory, with a diverse type of soil and climate between regions, poses challenging tasks to be solved and scaled up.
Our first agricultural robot (Frey)(Aside figure) , which served as a test platform to measure soil moisture. From there, a diversity of project ideas emerged!
Below, a list of ongoing projects for agricultural scenarios.
