Special Interest Group: Are robots good enough for farming yet?

November 8 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Agri-EPI invites you to attend a virtual Special Interest Group on the 8th November.

As agricultural robots transition from a long-standing vision to tangible on-farm applications, it becomes crucial to draw wisdom from early adopters and cross-industry parallels. Our session aims to delve into the core question: Are these robots truly safe and robust enough to meet the intricate demands of modern farming within the dynamic landscapes of the UK countryside? Our distinguished speakers, featuring a farm manager with firsthand experience in robot deployment and an automotive expert dedicated to vehicle safety, will provide invaluable insights as we explore this topic. However, the heart of our session lies in an engaging and participatory workshop, where we invite our audience to share their unique perspectives and priorities.


  • Chris Woodrow, Continental Engineering Services, Test and Development Enablers Team Lead
  • Oliver Scott, Bradford Estates, Farms Director

The workshop session will be led by Kirsten Ayris, PhD student at the FoodBioSystems DTP at Reading University.
