Core Project 6 analyzes the potential impact of robotics and phenotyping technologies on agricultural development, welfare, the environment, the landscape, as well as on the farm level. Therefore, we are developing a simulation model for PhenoRob technology diffusion and impact. We are also assessing regional feasibility and the ecological-economic impact in Germany and the rest of the world by analyzing economic barriers and opportunities for the market launch of the inventions.
