Robotics Technology for Agriculture

In agricultural environments human laborers adaptively perform many tasks such as seeding, weeding, spraying pesticides, or harvesting. Due to the advances in robotic perception, learning and hardware, it is now possible for them to deployed for such tasks.  With an increasing global population and worsening climate conditions, this is becoming increasingly important; robotic technologies are required to perform agricultural tasks in an efficient and sustainable manner to preserve food security. To enable robots to operate in challenging agricultural environments we require technologies that show human-levels of adaptivity in recognition, planning, grasping, and even just locomotion. In this sense, agriculture can be considered to be one of best milestones for assessing process made in robotics.

This special issue focuses on agriculture-related robotics technologies for realizing adaptability in the real world/field. We are accepting goal-directed real-world application papers, which sometimes may not be accepted in more traditional robotic journals. We encourage a focus on new and novel ideas generated from interdisciplinary field working towards the common goal of achieving adaptive intelligence.
