Robot manufacturers that will be present, are FarmDroid, Meropy, Naïo Technologies, Osiris Agriculture, Exxact Robotics, AgroIntelli, EcoRobotix, SITIA, AgreenCulture and, Exobotic Technologies.
The agricultural robotics village will also host a number of talks. In a dedicated lecture room, every day, guests are welcome to join round tables and workshops. Topics will include ‘Robots in the field’, ‘Robots to alleviate the tough working conditions of farmers’, ‘Robotics for the benefit of row crops’ and ‘Robots to reduce (or eliminate) the use of chemical products’.
Speakers from all over the world will come to share their experience and vision of agricultural robotics, also offering an opportunity for dialogue, as these round tables and workshops aim to be as interactive as possible.
For this 2022 edition, SIMA sets out to be the meeting place for solutions and technologies for agriculture, instead of just an agricultural machinery show. Following a postponed edition, SIMA makes a festive comeback to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Over the space of five days, the past and future of the show will be feted through dedicated content and special features.
SIMA will also host the SIMA Innovation Awards. In the Category Robotics and embedded electronics ae nominated Trelleborg, Krone, John Deere, Amazone, Ecorobotix and Rolland. Other categories are Soils and crops, From harvest to storage, Services and software and Livestock, renewable energy.
