Limited resources, climate change and a rapidly growing world population make efficiency and sustainability the biggest challenges in horticulture and agriculture. Using the latest technologies is the key to meeting these challenges. Year for year, a team of students from the Institute of Mechatronics in Mechanical and Automotive Engineering at the University of Kaiserslautern, and many other teams, participate in the Field Robot Event, an international competition for autonomous field robots, giving a detailed picture of the new generation of agricultural technology.
