Large-scale "robotization" of the Russian agricultural industry started


Last week, the company “Cognitive Pilot” and the largest agricultural holding “EkoNiva” signed an agreement providing for the creation of a service network that will allow to bring to the fields more than 10 thousand unmanned combines. Moreover, a similar agreement was previously concluded with Rusagro.


For our country, this is extremely important and timely, especially considering the recent geopolitical events. The day before, China “froze” part of food supplies from the USA in response to the White House’s position in Hong Kong. But the Celestial Empire would not have taken such a “bold” step if it were not for our country, where China is the largest buyer of food.

However, despite the fact that a promising market has opened up for us, Russia cannot satisfy even its domestic demand for individual items, not to mention huge China. In this situation, it is imperative for us to increase the efficiency of the agricultural industry, and robotization of agriculture can become the “key to success”.

Moreover, the process of "digitalization" will not leave people without work. Despite the fact that an unmanned combine harvester is able to harvest with jewelry accuracy, a man must still be present in the car, who in this case will monitor the operation of the automation.

And finally, about the harvesters themselves. Since unmanned technique will control the neural network, the effectiveness of its work will depend on the accuracy of recognition of images coming through an external camera. In turn, in order to learn how to correctly distinguish between objects, she needs to process as many images as possible.

This is where the scale of the project will play a key role. Since unmanned harvesters will go to the fields practically throughout Russia, our “electronic brain” will get a unique chance to quickly become literally the smartest in the world.

    Ideally, it would be nice to learn how to control combines from space. May come in handy when exploring the moon ...
    1. And Mars, darling, Mars !!

      Yeah, even in the days of Khrushchev, there was a ditty among the people - "We will go to the moon, there we will plow the virgin soil." "And the apple trees will bloom on Mars."

    Hard to believe in implementation. To do this, you need to change, if not everything in our agriculture, then almost everything. Start with the most accurate field marking, determine the geometry, border coordinates, level all areas, solve the problem of irrigation .... Combines should work on their own, within the field, and not according to commands from the manager’s console sitting on the field’s border or in the office .
    It must be understood that any digitalization of management is the hardest work of organizing work.
    As a company advertisement, window dressing is currently good. It would be better to use the funds thrown under your feet in another, more urgent matter - the development of animal husbandry, breeding, breeding ....
    Everything is dirty with us (you know what word I wanted to write) up is done .....

    And I am against this issue at all. This project simply robs ordinary people, who are more, of work. First, all state farms and villages collapsed, and when there was no one to work, everyone invented nonsense. And under this nonsense more money will be allocated.

    ... unmanned harvesters will go to the fields practically all over Russia, our “electronic brain” will get a unique chance to become literally the smartest in the world very quickly.

    ABOUT!! More fields, not a lot of combiners, the smartest of smart brains, Skynet, overpower ....

    Sobyanin, Chubais and the PF of the Russian Federation triumph - people are no longer needed ....

    This not only deprives the work of simple combine harvesters and tractor drivers. This increases the cost of product production at times. Compare the wages of hard workers and computer office plankton. For 40 thousand no one will come to work there. The Internet stop, intentional or accidental, and hundreds of inactive pieces of iron, frozen in the fields, which even cannot be dragged home by hand. According to modern statistics, 5 .... 10% of the population of the country work in modern agriculture. What will be the labor savings? How many machines can work in FULL autonomous mode, and how many in sub-tuning? Auto lock will be zero without a wand. And what's the difference in the reduction, or in the increase in the number of personnel, one leads the radio technique along the furrow, and three computer technicians sit and wait for a call to eliminate the jam. We take into account the time to get from the office to the tractor stuck in the field, or not? Bullshit. It seems to me that the Investigative Committee should be interested in this idea. Something smells of large thefts.

    Yes. They equip the equipment with devices, communications, and an electronic boy will sit on the edge of the field, steering the combine with the joysticks. Watching the behavior of iron from the helicopter. They will spend trilliards, and someone will scatter where to, in the wake of the escaped rogue oligarchs. They will declare themselves political prisoners of the damned regime.
