14 international teams - virtual test areas - innovative robot technology... and the feeling of a live event reproduced online of a classic competition in the agricultural machinery industry. That's what the International Field Robot Event 2021 has to offer.



This year, the 18th edition of the International Field Robot Event will take place as a virtual event from June 8 to 10, 2021, on DLG's digital platform. The annual contest for student teams and their field robots will be using a simulation environment similar to that used in the "NASA Space Robotics Challenge" to test robotic software for space exploration. The virtual event provides participants with realistic designs with real-life effects to recreate a range of agricultural field scenarios.

Simulated arable field tasks
Automation and digitization, optimized crop production as well as sustainable agriculture are the agricultural challenges selected for the virtual field robot contest. 14 international student teams from Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania and Slovenia, will present their virtual robots in action, performing complex field maneuvers. This year one of the teams is comprised of talented school-aged pupils from across Germany. The 3D robotic simulator “ROS / Gazebo” used for the event offers realistic designs of weed and obstacles, with photo-realistic effects like shadows, lighting and textures in 3D.

Event to be streamed live on DLG’s digital platform
The Field Robot Event is a partner of the DLG Feldtage event. The DLG is streaming the event live on its digital platform.

Information on how to participate:
• Attending the virtual event is free of charge and requires a simple registration on DLG's digital platform.
• Registration is open from June 7.
• The link to the registration is available here.
