The AgriRobot research project, a joint initiative between companies and universities in the United Kingdom and Jiangsu Province in China, has been completed successfully at the end of March 2020 with the completion of a prototype autonomous navigation system for agricultural vehicles.
The project ran for a duration of two years with the aim of creating a prototype autonomous navigation system for agricultural vehicles, specifically for task-based navigation on orchard environments. The project was lead by Innova Integra and involved Loughborough University as a scientific partner in the development of the prototype system. Additional partners from Jiangsu Province in China contributed to the project development and to use case, demonstration and testing activities. The AgriRobot project received financial supported from InnovateUK in the United Kingdom and Jiangsu Province in Jiangsu Province, China. Innova Integra continues to work on the development and commercialisation of the prototype.
