utonomous robotic weed control systems : A review .

  title={utonomous robotic weed control systems : A review .},
  author={C. Slaughter and Durham K. Giles and Daniel Downey},
Autonomous robotic weed control systems hold promise toward the automation of one of agriculture’s few remaining unmechanized and drudging tasks, hand weed control. Robotic technology may also provide a means of reducing agriculture’s current dependency on herbicides, improving its sustainability and reducing its environmental impact. This review describes the current status of the four core technologies (guidance, detection and identification, precision in-row weed control, and mapping… 
An Autonomous Robotic System for Mapping Weeds in Fields
The framework for a working automatic robotic weeding system is presented along with the implemented computer vision systems.
Autonomous Technologies in Agricultural Equipment: A Review of the State of the Art
Automation and robotics for agricultural production are topics of tremendous interest and large investments. There have been significant recent advances in agricultural automation and robotics in the
Automatic guidance of a four‐wheel‐steering mobile robot for accurate field operations
Experimental results demonstrate that despite sliding phenomena, the mobile robot is able to automatically and accurately achieve a desired path, with lateral and angular errors, respectively, within ±10 cm and ±2 deg, whatever its shape and whatever the terrain conditions.
Development of small weeding robots for rice fields
The developed robotic system, in particular the robot hardware and radio communication network, and verification of the system use in an actual rice field are presented.
A robot to detect and control broad‐leaved dock (Rumex obtusifolius L.) in grassland
It is concluded that the robot is an effective instrument to detect and control broad-leaved dock under the conditions encountered on a commercial farm.
Nonlinear control design for row guidance system of an automated asparagus harvesting robot
In this paper, a row guidance system based on nonlinear control strategy is proposed for an automated asparagus harvesting robot. The control system is developed using a two-layer structure to reject
Software and Hardware Architectures in Cooperative Aerial and Ground Robots for Agricultural Disease Detection
