The robotic mower “MOWBOT” has been promoted for the turf production industry as a result of identification of a robotic unit developed by Swarm Farm in Emerald and used for spraying purposes. Discussions at the board level has seen ongoing dialogue with both QUT and USQ on technology input and robotics. The idea is to have a small number of these mowing the farm and cutting down on cost and labour as a means of cost control. Swarm Farm out of Emerald in Central Queensland is willing to work with Turf Queensland on their ‘SMART’ technology base that has been tested on their own spray equipment and supported by the Queensland government Department of Science, Innovation and Technology.
