Agricultural robotics is an area of growing interest with the potential to bring about profound economic and social benefits. Interest in this area is motivated by the need to improve the industries and processes that feed the planet. Autonomous systems are currently being developed for tasks such as pruning, thinning, harvesting, mowing, targeted spraying, nonchemical weed control, and high-resolution crop surveillance. A new cohort of people in agriculture will develop, commercialize, and operate such systems. Social events played an important part in the success of the school. On the first day, participants introduced themselves via a lightning round that consisted of a rapid sequence of single-slide, 60-s presentations. A participant poster session followed, promoting informal discussion in a semistructured environment.
