From precision farming to autonomous farming: How commodity technologies enable revolutionary impact | Robohub

Our company already is selling GPS guidance systems for tractors, harvesters and spray rigs in the Georgian market, as well a variable-rate control systems for precision application of seed and chemical. Next year will see our new developments in robotic equipment, assembled in Georgia for European use.

The following article is worth reading to the end. All these techniques have been adopted already in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan to reduce risk and cost of production, but are as yet unused here.

 

The popular conception of farming as low-tech is woefully out of date. Modern farmers are high-tech operators: They use GIS software to plan their fields, GPS to guide field operations, and auto-steer systems to make tractors follow that GPS guidance without human hands. Given this technology foundation, the transition to full autonomy is already in progress, leveraging commodity parts and advanced software to get there more quickly than is possible in many other domains.
