Autonomous Crop Tractor
Check Your Understanding:
1. Why is it important for the robot be able to drive through an orchard?
To perform specialized tasks to different types of crops
GPS is required while navigating around the orchard
To perform tasks like inspection and spraying which cannot be done as effectively through other means
All of the above
2. What is the advantage of the Autonomous Tractor over a human driver?
Reduces the need for humans to perform the repetitive task of driving through the orchard over and over
Reduces exposing human to hazard areas while performing inspections
Autonomous Tractor can travel through an area where a human driver may get lost
There is no big advantage
