From 2016-19, a team from the Australian Centre for Field Robotics at the University of Sydney undertook projects focusing on advancing the application of robotics, intelligent sensing systems, precision agriculture automation and more in Australia’s vegetable industry.

During this time, many vegetable industry members would have seen the LadyBird™ and RIPPA™ robots in both trial-farm and commercial-farm settings.

A Hort Innovation-funded project using autonomous systems to guide vegetable decision making on-farm, was undertaken to research and develop novel sensors, algorithms and robotic technologies that would help reduce production cost and increase on-farm productivity in the vegetable industry.
