On Thursday 1st December, students at Writtle University College in Essex saw a robot rolling through their corridors.
The team at Antobot presented a breakdown of the cutting-edge tech behind our robots, Insight and Assist, alongside the results and lessons learned from a whole season testing with growers. The team then gave a live demonstration of one of our robot platforms in Writtle’s bespoke greenhouse for the students from first year agriculture and horticulture, third year agriculture and MSc Crop Production as well as Writtle University College staff.
Writtle University College's Dr Anya Perera said: "We were delighted to welcome Antobot to our campus. At Writtle University College we offer our students opportunities to experience the very latest agri-tech. Thank you to Dr Wu and his team for demonstrating the ways they place science into practice."
Antobot is dedicated to partnering with academic institutions to deliver the most innovative solutions and accelerate agri-tech straight into the hands of growers (or current students, future growers!). You can see more about our partnerships here.
Dr Wu said: "We were thrilled to present our tech to Writtle's students today. The students had so much insight from their varied agricultural backgrounds so it was great to introduce them into agri-tech and our robots. Being based just down the road in Chelmsford, we're looking forward to building a strong relationship between Antobot and Writtle University College as a historic Essex institution with nearly 130 years' experience in agriculture."
