MECHANIZATION IN AGRICULTURE
In Industrial Institute of Agriculture Engineering (Poznań, Poland), together with the Institute of Vehicle of Warsaw Technical University and firm Promar Poznań action have been taken to design autonomous field robot for sowing and cultivation of crops. Designed robot is to be autonomous device. It will automatically perform the sowing, weeding and selective spraying plant crops such as sugar beet or maize. The robot will work in various terrain and weather conditions. It will move on the dirt roads and on cultivated fields, and therefore it will have to overcome mud, sand, puddles and avoid obstacles such as ruts, bumps in the road and stones. The achievement of this objective required the development of a suitable chassis, system of autonomous control in terms of driving and realization of agronomic processes.
