Robot Lab Live Highlights – Robots in the Hills

In this demonstration we will show you an off-road robot autonomously driving on a track and across a field, then performing a task.

The robot’s route is specified in (almost) plain English, with expressions like "drive across the field until you find a road and turn left". This allows intuitive routes to be set, rather than relying on precise locations. Using its cameras, the robot can recognise the track and follow a given bearing across a field. In the field, the robot will either locate a sheep and drive to it (e.g. to drop a hay bale), or drive around and detect weeds.
