Farm Robotics Challenge Virtual Awards Ceremony

Join us on June 3rd for the Farm Robotics Challenge Virtual Awards Ceremony! This exciting event, hosted over Zoom, showcases the ingenuity and innovation of student teams from participating universities and colleges across the United States.


Our competition focuses on solutions for small-farm applications, allowing participants to integrate robotics and accelerate use-inspired translation. This year's challenges encompass a wide range of topics, from autonomy and artificial intelligence to vision and sensing, data collection, and developing implements for farm tasks.


In this event, you'll get the opportunity to witness the team projects in action, watch their compelling pitches to our esteemed judges, and see which teams will claim the prizes.


We invite you to register for the event and join us in celebrating the next generation of agricultural technology pioneers.
