AbstractAdvanced technologies are critical for safe, site-specific and efficient control of pests (weeds, pathogens and insects) in agricultural crops. Although the scientific and technological bases of precision crop protection are mostly known and robust, the commercial application of these new technologies is still very limited. To overcome this situation, new farming methods and processes should be designed. Modern approaches rely on existing information and communication technologies (ICT) and design and construction of improved pest and crop sensors, along with enhanced pest control actuators. Mobile platforms are essential to move the needed sensors and actuators throughout the work field. Moreover, by using autonomous mobile platforms equipped with innovative perception techniques, data processing systems and tools for action, pest control procedures can be applied only if, when and where they are needed, reducing costs, environmental damages and risks for farmers. This article describes the RHEA fleet of robots highlighting the concepts and analyzing the results achieved on the application of herbicide on wheat with a spray boom.
