The objective of this project was to design and build an autonomous agricultural robot platform that is ready to be adapted for strawberry yield predication. The robot was required to have an all-electric drivetrain as a requirement for the project. A key requirement for this robot is to have the flexibility to be used with different crops and with different applications. It is also designed to be able to change width for use in fields with varying row spacing. The end product of these design requirements is a robot platform that has the capability of supporting a payload in excess of 200 pounds, allowing for installation of equipment for many different applications. The robot has four-wheel drive and four wheel steering capability, all with electric motors and actuators.
