Ro­bot farm

Vocable (Anglais) - - À La Une -

In Oc­to­ber, the Uni­ted States’ first au­to­no­mous ro­bot farm was laun­ched in Ca­li­for­nia. It was crea­ted by a com­pa­ny cal­led Iron Ox in or­der to ad­dress the two main is­sues that the agri­cul­tu­ral in­dus­try cur­rent­ly faces: a la­bour shor­tage and a need to in­crease pro­duc­tion. Au­to­no­mous ma­chines are used to plant lea­fy greens and herbs in in­di­vi­dual pots. A ro­bot control­led by AI soft­ware then moves around the farm, trans­por­ting the pots to the pro­ces­sing area. Ano­ther ro­bot is in charge of har­ves­ting the plants. In­ves­tors, convin­ced by the pro­ject, have mas­si­ve­ly hel­ped Iron Ox with fun­dings, ma­king more than $10bn in in­vest­ments last year. in or­der to afin de / to ad­dress s’at­ta­quer à, ten­ter de ré­soudre / main prin­ci­pal / is­sue pro­blème / cur­rent­ly ac­tuel­le­ment / la­bour main-d’oeuvre / shor­tage pé­nu­rie / lea­fy green lé­gume-feuille (chou, sa­lade…) / AI = ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence / soft­ware lo­gi­ciel(s) / pro­ces­sing (de) trai­te­ment / to har­vest ré­col­ter / fun­ding fi­nan­ce­ment / bn = bil­lion mil­liard.
