Unmanned Ground Vehicles
About the Technology
The XAG R150 is a compact unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) designed for agricultural applications. The R150 uses a combination of global positioning satellite (GPS) and real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning to navigate autonomously.
Two XAG R150 UGV units were deployed to carry out a range of on-farm tasks in three different cropping systems.
