Farming robots research can currently be classified as (1) development of position recognition and autonomous locomotion robot and (2) manipulators enough not to damage plants. In the future, robots with integrated locomotion and manipulation, Branch remover, fruit and vegetable harvesters, fruit-tree croppers, automatic combine, rice-field management tractor were introduced.
