Agrointelli releases new autonomous farming robot and announces first distributor in Australia

Danish automated farming company Agrointelli has developed a new version of its autonomous farming robot, called Robotti LR.

An automated implement carrier, the Robotti LR automates tasks in agriculture and horticulture and can be fitted with a variety of farm implements to perform different tasks throughout the season.

The original Robotti machine, the 150D, has also recently reached our shores via the announcement that Corematic is the first Australian distributor of Agrointelli’s Robotti robot, launched at events in Bundaberg and Toowoomba in January.

Corematic will work with service providers across the country, the first of which is Formatt Machinery based in the Wide Bay district of Queensland.

"Technology helps establish a direct relationship with the most advanced experts all around the world and Agrointelli is one of them," Corematic CEO Jonathan Legault says.

Corematic key account manager Cyril Delorme adds: "With labour shortage becoming a more challenging issue every day and the underlying need to increase productivity, the need to bring innovation and automation to our farmers is evident.

"Farmers are pressing us more and more to see an autonomous system functional here in Australia."

Diesel-powered, the Robotti works autonomously via its connection to the GSM network, utilising RTK-GPS, with users able to track its location and status via the Robotti website. Its path is computer-generated to be optimised and it can spin on a stationary point.

The 150D’s three-point hitch can lift up to 750kg and is equipped with two Kubota engines that meet Stage V emissions standards and can operate for 20 hours at a time, whether seeding, weeding, spraying or fertilising.

"Automation is growing significantly in Australia and agriculture is an important sector in the country," Agrointelli CCO Jakob Bebe says.

"Robotti can play a significant role in automating the agricultural processes and therefore, we see Australia as an interesting market."

The new LR model, which isn’t yet confirmed to be planned for launch in Australia, is a non-power take-off single engine version, utilising space in the modules for a diesel tank of 300L capacity. This allows the robot to operate up to 60 hours at a time and it has a larger lift capacity of 1,250kg.

"Robotti LR is the product of many operational hours in the field and customers’ feedback throughout the years," Agrointelli chief product officer Hans Christian Carstensen says.

"We have seen that farmers are requiring larger lift capacity, longer range between refuelling, higher on-wheel torque and higher hydraulics capacity. All these inputs have been the base for the development of Robotti LR and I am thrilled to see the result."
