Forge™ Versatile Task Automation with the Forge™ Robotic Platform


Orchard & Vineyard Synchronize Automated Row Coverage


Overcome Labor Shortages

A 2012 study by the California Farm Bureau Federation reported that 71% of labor-intensive specialty crops growers experience labor shortages, leaving 1 in 5 unable to finish their harvest*. ASI farm automation technology helps overcome paralyzing labor shortages while improving productivity and safety.

Labor Shortages


Convert to Robotic Control




Leverage hardware, software, and sensors to create a seamless autonomous system.



Nav

Nav

Add cameras and software to upgrade from remote control to teleoperation. With teleop, operators enjoy improved flexibility as they control vehicles from a remote location.



Vantage

Vantage

Make your automated farm a safer place with Vantage® obstacle detection and avoidance. Equip robotic farm vehicles with the ability to see and safely react to unexpected hazards.


Mobius

Mobius

Experience the world's most advanced command & control software system for unmanned vehicles. Manage multiple robotic farm vehicles with a single operator to improve productivity and safety.



How it works

How it works

Each unmanned farm vehicle is equipped with a series of hardware and software components that permit a user to toggle between manual and robotic control. The components work with the existing by-wire, mechanical, or hydraulic control system and link vehicles to a central command station, allowing a single operator to simultaneously manage multiple vehicles throughout a farm operation.



Full Farm Automation

We make the tools you use every day safer and more productive.



Forge

Forge

Forge™ leverages a skid steer base and more than a hundred attachments to make robotic farming more flexible and affordable. Forge's thin frame is especially effective for tasks in narrow orchard and vineyard rows.



Compact Tractor

Compact Tractor

Compact tractors specialize in fitting between the narrow rows of orchard, vineyard, and other specialty crop operations. Farm automation allows specialty crop growers to improve productivity and safety.


Tractor

Tractor

For larger row crop operations, growers need multiple, larger tractors, combines, or other vehicles. With farming automation, these growers can experience economies of scale as they coordinate multiple unmanned vehicles.



Field, Orchard & Vineyard Coverage

Advanced path-generating algorithms in Mobius calculate the most efficient area coverage pattern for a field taking into account the type of task, size of implements, number of vehicles in the field, vehicle and implement turn radius, and more.




Two or more farming vehicles can coordinate on an area coverage task in a single field or can be operated simultaneously in completely separate fields.
