Advanced engineering could be the solution for the sustainable intensification of agriculture, as technology for producing service robots reaches maturity. An expert in robotics from the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln, UK, will discuss the latest developments in the sector during Agri-Tech East’s ‘Pollinator’ event on 11th October 2016. Professor Duckett, who
Scientists at the University of Lincoln, UK, will lead three pioneering research projects as part of a new wave of government funding aimed at solving some of the world’s greatest agricultural challenges. The new agri-tech projects, which will support innovation in farming and food production, have been awarded a share of £16 million funding through
A project involving 3D camera technology currently being developed at the University of Lincoln, UK, could result in a fully automatic robotic harvesting system for broccoli. The University of Lincoln was one of more than 70 UK businesses and universities to share funding through the £70 million Agri-Tech Catalyst, which aims to improve the development […]
