Why the question:

The question aims to evaluate the key benefits of robotics in automated agriculture and manufacturing in the country.

Key Demand of the question:

Discuss first in what way technological convergence in industrial revolution 4.0 has brought in robotics much closer to human interface. And then evaluate the key benefits of robotics in automated agriculture and manufacturing in the country.

Directive:

Evaluate – When you are asked to evaluate, you have to pass a sound judgement about the truth of the given statement in the question or the topic based on evidences.  You have to appraise the worth of the statement in question. There is scope for forming a personal opinion here.

Structure of the answer:

Introduction:

The Industrial Revolution 4.0 can be said to be the advent of cyber-physical systems which is marked

by a fusion of technologies straddling the physical, digital and biological worlds.

Body:

Discuss first in what way technological convergence in industrial revolution 4.0 has brought in robotics much closer to human interface. Explain this with suitable recent advancement examples.

Then move on to explain the benefits – Key benefits of robotics in automated agriculture and manufacturing in the country are-

  • They do not get sick or want a time off. They can work the whole year round.
  • They offer fewer errors and at higher speeds. They result in higher quality.
  • They can be used in various fields in agriculture like around the field, trees, ponds etc.

They can reduce up to 80% of farm’s use of pesticides.

  • The robots have many fields of application in the agriculture such as the Merlin Robot Milker, Rosphere, Harvest Automation, Orange Harvester, lettuce bot, and the weeder.
  • They can be used in the livestock applications (the livestock robotics) such as the automatic

Milking, washing and castrating.

  • They improve the safety of the workers as they handle the harmful chemicals. • Higher profitability etc.

Conclusion:

Conclude by mentioning the concerns and in what way they can be resolved by suggesting solutions to the same.
