Great Idea Warren
this would be the next step in industry removal as agriculture
is our only remaining large scale industry.
and if we can compete with the extremely low wage countries
using robots we just might be able to maintain our leadership
I know that the solar industry is already using robots to clean
the solar reflector pannels in solar farms , so why no use them in agriculture also.
these robots would mean many high paid high tech jobs
and since shipping is so expensive that would mean that
many new robot factories would pop up to fill the need
for these robots.
heck when you look at a modern tractor these days you kind of wonder why they even need a driver in them , they could even be
opperated by a robot, they already have gps in them.
just program it and let it go.
international harvester already uses robotics to do most of the construction of the combines they produce in the U.S.A.
not in some foreign country , so at least they are wise
to whats happening , and they know that to be competitive in this
world of extremely low wages you must use robotics.
