Heavy field machines are currently the standard in agriculture, but they have many disadvantages, such as a high weight, which can cause to undesirable soil compaction. In addition, most field machines are powered by fossil fuels.

The CERES field robot developed within the COGNAC project, in contrast, is small, comparably light and can operate autonomously – meaning, without a driver – on fields. Its tasks are controlled by a software ensuring that CERES performs all work efficiently and with high precision – either on its own or in cooperation with additional units.
Another advantage: CERES is powered by electricity. With the support of a trailer with integrated underbody charging system, it is capable of working around the clock.

Come experience on our test track how CERES automatically works and recharges!
