The German engineering company Digital Workbench unveiled its modular Tipard 1800 field robot at the Agritechnica 2023 trade fair.

The Tipard 1800 from Digital Workbench is a modular autonomous tool carrier. The Tipard 1800 field robot is intended not only for hoeing machines but for many more applications. Think of robotic arms for weed control and harvesting fruit and berries.

The field robot has several unique features, such as track width adjustment and automatic leveling with active damping on all four wheels. The track width is hydraulically adjustable from 1.5 to 2.7 meters. With this narrow configuration, the vehicle can also work in orchards.

The ground clearance is also hydraulically adjustable from 0.85 to 1.1 meters. In the other driving direction of the vehicle, the track width is 3.5 or 3.6 meters.

Four-Wheel drive and steering field robot

The Tipard 1800 field robot is four-wheel drive and steered. This allows the robot to not only make tight turns at the headland but also drive in various directions across a plot or through a crop. This is possible lengthwise, widthwise, and also in crab steering. The vehicle can carry tools in different positions and lift up to 800 kilograms.

Diesel engine and lithium iron phosphate battery

In terms of motorization and driveline, the Tipard 1800 is standardly equipped with a 25 hp diesel engine as a generator and one or more lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries of 14 kWh. The number of batteries is also modular. The driving speed is a maximum of 6 km/h.

The Tipard 1800 field robot is already limited commercially available starting at € 135,500.
