Autonomous systems have become a key priority in governmental agendas. In 2013, David Willetts already included them as one of the Eight Great Technologies which will propel the UK to future growth. Investment in the research and development strategy has continued to push the technology forward since. Key to this is government support for the agri-food sector, to transform from low-tech to high-tech. This includes the formation of four new centres for agricultural innovation. The aim is to improve agricultural productivity and quality in a sustainable way.
This seminar will address the following questions:
- Can autonomous systems decrease the risk in and increase the efficiency of environmental and agricultural task?
- What are the enabling applications that use this new technology?
- What research challenges and opportunities will automation provide?
