Our very own AgriFoRwArdS CDT Director, Professor Marc Hanheide, will feature on BBC Countryfile this Sunday 18th April 2021.
Marc will be at Clock House Farm in Kent, where he will be discussing another of his fantastic projects, Robot Highways, funded by Innovate UK.
The exciting Robot Highways project involves several partners, each with significant expertise in their chosen areas. The project is being led by AgriFoRwArdS Industry Partner, Saga Robotics, alongside the University of Lincoln, British Telecommunications, Clock House Farm, University of Reading, and AgriFoRwArdS Industry Partners, the Manufacturing Technology Centre and Berry Gardens Growers.
Robot Highways will be the largest known global demonstration of robotic and autonomous systems (RAS) technologies, fusing multiple application technologies across a single farming system. With focus on providing fleets of electric RAS powered by renewable energy, which pick, transport and pack fruit, whilst also gathering data to maximise yield, and reduce waste and environmental impacts.
