Iron Ox Robotic Farming

Iron OxAs we get closer to robotic farming, one company near San Fransisco aims to make it a reality. Iron Ox uses two robots in its 8,000 sq ft hydroponic farm facility.

One robot carries the heavy trays around while another picks up the plants and puts them in spaces with more room as they grow bigger.

The company states they are trying to fill the shortage of farm employees while also shortening the distance food travels before it is consumed.

Software called “The Brain” helps integrate the two robots so they work together.

If you like working with robots and are an Electrical Engineer or Mechanical Engineer, Iron Ox has some open positions.
