ICT x Robots for Innovation in 21st Century Agriculture
Japanese agriculture is facing serious labor shortages, including an aging agricultural workforce. In order to solve these problems and make agriculture a growth industry, “smart agriculture” utilizing Japan’s advanced technology is required. Our laboratory aims to bring about innovation in agriculture through “robotization,” such as unmanned tractors, and “informatization,” in which the skills of veteran farmers are converted into data and utilized!
