farming revolution GmbH

farming revolution was spun out of the former Deepfield Robotics team from the Bosch Startup Incubator in 2019. Our strengths lie in AI-based image processing for crop detection and field robotics. We are driven by the idea that selective mechanical weed control can and should be economical for farming companies of all sizes.

We are working on this vision with the further development and commercialization of an autonomous, camera-supported agricultural robot for weed control. The lightweight and maneuverable robot is close to market maturity and has the potential to replace the costly hand hoe and conventional weed control with herbicides with a powerful and cost-effective hoeing technology on small and large farms.

Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) e.V.

ZALF conducts research on economically, ecologically and socially sus­tain­able agriculture of the future - together with stakeholders from science, politics and practice, combining complex landscape data with a unique set of experimental methods, new technologies, computer-based models and socio-economic approaches.

Here, ZALF is investigating the use of digitization and new technologies, their impact on food security and the preservation or enhancement of diverse ecosystem services and biodiversity in agricultural landscapes. This will enable us to develop digital farming systems of the future that are less sensitive to the effects of climate change, emit fewer greenhouse gases and are optimally adapted to their location.

ZALF is involved in pioneering research projects such as DAKIS and PhenoRob, and leads the ZALF landscape laboratory patchCROP. All of these projects, as well as the DeepFarmBots network, deal, among other things, with the experimental approach of agricultural diversification through small-scale field arrangements and site-adapted crop rotations at the landscape level, which can be managed in the future with field robotics.

TU Kaiserslautern - Lehrstuhl für Roboter­systeme

The Robotics Research Lab (RRLab) has been founded by Prof. Dr. Karsten Berns at the University of Kaiserslautern in April 2003. Its main research activities are focused on the realization of complex autonomous robotic systems like wheel-driven indoor and outdoor vehicles as well as climbing robots. In the field of humanoids, human-robot interaction is studied as well as bipedal walking.

To coordinate complex robotic systems, biologically motivated approaches are followed on the level of algorithms as well as the general control architecture. The development of elaborate machines requires specific design and implementation strategies for large hardware/software assemblies. In this context, the members of the RRLab are studying innovative computer architectures and electronic concepts. Furthermore, the lab’s researchers are constantly developing and improving tools for the adequate support of the development process over the full life cycle of robotic systems.

The lab has been and still is involved in numerous funded projects (BMBF, EU, …) and has collaborations with several partners from the industry (Volvo, John Deere, …). Furthermore, the RRLab is also a member of the Center for Commercial Vehicle Technology (CVT).

University of Münster - Computer Vision and Machine Learning Systems Group (CVMLS)

Within the CVMLS group, we specialize in research questions related to machine learning, machine vision, and innovative imaging systems. In particular, we are interested in interdisciplinary research questions with diverse applications such as robotics, ecology, biology, or medicine.

This requires a fundamental investigation of the way computers perceive and understand complex real-world situations. By looking at the entire process from data acquisition to data interaction to quantitative analysis, we are able to develop solutions beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. Within the DeepFarmBots network we are, besides the general development of innovative CVMLS methods, especially interested in the development of real-time machine learning systems and dedicated "computer vision for farming" approaches.

W. Neudorff GmbH KG

We develop and manufacture environmentally friendly products for plant care and protection and can provide great regulatory expertise.

We pay attention to sus­tain­able production and therefore produce our own green electricity using hydropower, solar systems and combined heat and power generation. We strive to save resources in all areas. That is our contribution to environmental protection. We are therefore all the more pleased that our achievements have already been honoured several times. We are the winner for the German Sustainability Award 2021 in the transformation field "Resources". We were also a national winner of the "Social Responsibility and Environmental Awareness" award, presented by the European Business Awards (2017/18). As early as 2016, we made it into the top 10 in Europe in the "Environmental and Sustainability" category of the European Business Awards.

Zauberzeug GmbH

It's crazy how many things still have to be done by hand. We at Zauberzeug GmbH automate these processes with intelligent software and robotics, leaving more time for the important things.

Among other things, we have developed a cost-effective tracking solution for in- and near-door scenarios. We sell our modular, AI-capable machine controller "Robot Brain" and offer a web platform for Active Learning, with which we can iteratively train and improve AI models. 

In our experience, it is best to think of automation holistically. That's why we are specialists in software development. And user interfaces. And mechanical engineering. And neural networks. And electronics. And product design. And system administration. And much, much more. It sounds crazy; but that's the only way to really implement automation successfully.
