New Autonomous Guided Vehicle for Agriculture
A new autonomous guided vehicle has been developed which will help the horticulture sector solve the labour shortage problems, according to researchers at University of Warwick. The model developed has the potential to be used in both glasshouse and outdoor environments. It helps the farmers by automating the movement of boxes and trays around the production area, thus speeding up production. Cutting-edge technologies used in automotive industry was used for developing the prototype.Key aspects of the solution include the ability to work both indoors and outdoors and for it to be usable in conjunction with application-specific attachments of different types.
