The Robotics Challenge 2019
We are the innovation platform of BayWa AG and RWA Raiffeisen Ware Austria AG, two of the largest player in the global agricultural sector. Positioned right at the interface of development and implementation of novel technologies within the agricultural sector, we are constantly searching for solutions that significantly boost the efficiency of agricultural processes. Since technology for autonomous machines on the farm becomes more and more mature, we decided to put our focus on robotics in agriculture with the goal to help innovative companies to gain visible, long-term success, shaping the 21st century agriculture in a sustainable manner and gradually improving the world through our joint efforts. Therefore we are conducting the Robotics Challenge 2019.
We can offer tailor-made support and precisely those resources that high potential robotic company, need. Our new innovation format, the Robotics Challenge, focuses on companies, that offer innovative robots for agricultural use and at least have a working prototype. More specifically, we are looking for solutions in weed control and fruit and vegetable harvesting.
Goal of this Challenge is to define and implement a technical validation as well as a go-to-market strategy or market expansion concept, based on the company’s core competencies and customer needs. The test-phase will end with a top-class jury selecting the respective winners in the two fields. The winners have prospects for a sales cooperation with and/or an investment by BayWa and RWA.
