Robotti uses Velodyne’s Puck™ sensors for safe and efficient navigation on farmland. It supports a wide range of equipment such as a precision seeder, mechanical inter-row weeder and seed drill. Robotti performs highly accurate, site-specific agricultural operations including seedbed preparation, seeding, weeding, fertilizing, spraying and mowing.

Robotti is suitable for conventional and organic farms as well as in conservation agriculture. Farmers can let the robot work autonomously or manually control it from a tablet by using an app. Designed with uncompromising attention to safety, Robotti is built to react quickly and accurately should risk of accident arise.

“Robotti is a powerful automation tool to increase agricultural productivity,” said Tommy E. Madsen, CTO, AGROINTELLI. “It has the same capabilities as a smaller tractor but can complete the operations without a driver. Velodyne’s lidar sensors are essential to helping Robotti start a new agri-tech era where autonomous implement carriers become commercially sustainable and integrated into daily farming operations.”

“AGROINTELLI innovation in sustainable automation technologies and equipment is shaping the future of crop production,” said Erich Smidt, Executive Director Europe, Velodyne Lidar. “Robotti demonstrates how Velodyne sensors enable precision and safety in autonomous vehicles. Automation technologies like Robotti help address the shortage of qualified labor facing farms and the need to handle in-season cultivation without using crop protection products.”

Velodyne Puck sensors provide rich 3D computer perception data that allows real-time object and free space detection supporting safe navigation and reliable operation. The Puck is a small, compact lidar sensor that delivers 100 meters range. Its reliability, power-efficiency and surround view make it an ideal solution for affordable low speed autonomy applications.
