Robots in Farming: Good or Bad

Join the discussion on 14 July 2016 at Harper Adams University (UK) in the workshop on Social and environmental impact of robotics and autonomous systems in farming as part of the International Farming Systems Association Symposium 

Although technological advances can improve efficiency, they also often have unforeseen social and environmental impacts. The use of sensors and robotics in agriculture is increasing rapidly, and this workshop will give delegates an opportunity to learn about some of the current and possible future developments during the morning session. In the afternoon session there will be a chance to hear about the relevant risk governance issues in other recent technology advances, and to contribute to discussion of the wider impacts and risks of robotics and autonomous systems in different farming systems. 


The draft programme is now available. 


Offers of posters on any aspects of robotics and autonomous systems in farming are welcomed. Deadline for poster offers is Monday 21 December 2015. Abstract template and submission details at: harper.ac.uk/ifsa-papers
