Multi-machine autonomous systems in agriculture

Agriculture is in the early days of a significant transformation due to the advent of autonomy. Many of the early applications focus on the automation of simple tasks using autonomous machines working in isolation. As the technology matures, the industry may see a shift toward more systems that involve the coordination of multiple autonomous and non-autonomous machines to unlock the true value of autonomy for farm operations. This talk will explore some of the main challenges and considerations for multi-machine autonomous systems in agriculture along with the technology solutions that JCA has developed for these applications.
