Farmer needs a bot
Professor Salah Sukkarieh’s work at the University of Sydney’s world-leading Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) has taken in automated stevedoring, aerospace, mining, farming and more.
Sukkarieh is the best known for work on agricultural robotics, which has earned him honours that include a nomination for the New South Wales Australian of the Year this year and the CSIRO Eureka Prize in 2017.
Agricultural robotics offer a highly promising set of technologies that seem on the cusp of adoption on farms.
“I’d never been a specific industry person; I’ve always just been interested in systems engineer, together with, when it’s possible, field robotics,” Sukkarieh tells create of his work on ‘agbots’, which began early this century with weed identification using drones.
