Abstract

The population demands for food will significantly increase within the next few years, and that can only be sustained by doubling current food production worldwide. In order to achieve this, a transformational change through the development and adoption of new sustainable farm management practices technologies such as agricultural robots is required. One of the major issues that threaten agricultural activities is the presence of weeds among crops. This problem encouraged the existence of robotic weed control systems. The paper, as part of CLAWAR 2016's special session on field and agricultural robots, demonstrates what has been accomplished in the field of weed control robotic systems including their main components, theory of operation, and advantages and disadvantages of each robotic system.
