Agriculture Robotics and Intelligence Overview

The Rhodes State College Robotics and Intelligence Certificate provides students with the technical skills to support a career in this emerging field.  Courses in this certificate integrate agricultural applications to existing Rhodes State College courses of fluid power, electricity and electronics, programmable logic controllers and robotics and mechanatronics.  Courses in precision agriculture equipment and introduction to artificial intelligence in agriculture apply industrial robotic concepts towards applications in crop management and integrated pest management.  Agricultural robotic technology is increasing in soil sampling, stored grain quality maintenance, and controlled environment agriculture.  Local and technical expertise outside of the Rhodes State College supporting region was sought to develop this curriculum so that it would provide training in the anticipated growth area.  The courses utilize team learning and individual internships to integrate local and global information towards earning Fanuc Robot Certification.  Robotic applications are demonstrated through hands on learning and problem solving exercises.
