Robot Farmers Compete

Farm robot inventions descended on the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, Germany last week to compete for titles in the Field Robot Event 2006.

The robots matched skills on drawing field lines, maneuvering through Fields, finding dandelions, speed racing and freestyle demonstrations of skill.
Advanced competition included searching for holes and debris on a playing field.

The 'dandelions' were actually yellow golf balls - but the idea is there. If the farm thing doesn't work out they could always get a job at a driving range.

The overall winner out of a field of contestants from all over the world was MAIZERATI from Osnabruck, Germany.
