The SwagBot is an all-terrain robot that will soon be running the farm
The SwagBot is intended to be a low cost, powerful robot that can work across large, rugged areas. "Because of the type of terrain, it needed to have enough power and articulation capability to clamber over logs and ditches," Sukkarieh told Mashable Australia. Over the next few years, the lab intends to build more autonomy into the robot so it can perform certain tasks such as animal monitoring or weeding. "We're looking at how we can increase the level of autonomy so it makes it easier for the growers, which are usually just one man," he explained.
