Title: Challenges and Solutions for Autonomous, Sustainable and Resource Efficient Soil and Crop Management


To double agricultural production by 2050 agricultural production needs efficient and precise field machinery which conserves soil, manages a diverse cropping plan, and can be deployed by an aged or disabled person. Here we present a new traction mechanism for agricultural field machinery based on retractable crampons and a push-pull mechanism. The mechanism is energy-efficient, does not compact soil, and enables in-situ soil measurements. Substantial R&D in vehicle engineering, automatisation and socio-economics is required to develop its full potential. We provide a road map for further work, with a focus on immediate challenges and possible solutions.
