State-of-the-art technology from Niedersachsen: Precision farming, field robotics and AI

Precision farming 

The German Federal Research Centre for Cultivated Plants (JKI) tests 5G applications in agriculture. The 5G SmartCountry project involves huge volumes of data that need to be transferred quickly between satellites, drones, ground sensors and robots.


Field robotics

Researching the deployment of autonomous systems for managing and planting out farmland, Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences is closely linked to businesses in the field. The results of this research help Niedersachsen-based manufacturers launch competitive products on the market. More about the field robots of the future: Boni Rob from Osnabrück UAS.


Digitalisation and artificial intelligence: research, laboratories and experimentation fields

The sustainable use of energy and raw materials in agrotechnology is increasingly important

The use of new technologies is especially important for climate protection. Learn more about the latest trends in Niedersachsen:
