Agricultural Robotics

Feeding an ever-growing human population on Earth has always been a major challenge for humanity. This is especially important when we are facing issues such as the shortage of water resources, pollution, the decline of insect pollinators and climate change. Researchers from the West Virginia University Robotics programs have teamed up with faculty members and students from the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Design on various topics ranging from robotics pollination to pest control.
