Ag Engineering Expert's View: Autonomy Is the Answer

Dr. Scott Shearer, the chair of the Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department at Ohio State University, lays out his arguments for the role of autonomy in agriculture in this video. Specifically, he argues that small, autonomous tractors will be the key to reducing soil compaction caused by ever-larger tractors. I had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Shearer this past week.
