Solar robot tends to field for three days

Highlights
Stuff we love from across the waters

We’ve built the Ladybird: an intelligent robot for the vegetable industry. In part 1, we show the construction and testing of the vehicle on a commercial vegetable near Cowra, New South Wales. The vehicle can drive autonomously up and down rows of a vegetable farm, gathering data that we think will be useful for growers to manage the farm. The Ladybird is a solar electric powered vehicle, and during our three day trip, we didn’t need to charge the vehicle once.
