California-based Iron Ox began selling greens grown by robots on an automated farm.
The farm appeared in October last year. Numerous robots "work" there: manipulators and self-propelled porters. However, there are people on the farm too. They plant seedlings and pack plants for sale. According to the head of the company, artificial intelligence technologies are used on the farm to help grow products.
While in a store in the city of San Carlos (California, USA) you can only buy sorrel, basil and lettuce. 60 grams of the first will cost $ 2.49, a box of the second - $ 2.99, and a box of the third - $ 4.99.
Experts note that robotic farming cannot yet fully replace traditional farms. But to occupy your niche - completely. In addition, such farms take up less space and can be located closer to cities.
