This talk will present recent results in field robotics, sensor networks
and synergies between them. First, we will survey our work in field robotics which is focused in the mining industry with applications such as underground ore haulage and explosive loading, and open-pit excavation on a massive scale. More recent work in flying and underwater robots will also be described. Second, we will survey our work in sensor networks for monitoring the environment and creating digital
Our prototype digital farm is instrumented with sensors for fixed points such as local soil or water condition and sensors for mobile entities such as cattle, which move within and interact with the environment.
Ultimately we wish to model the behaviour of these animals and to controlthem by means of appropriate applied stimuli. Finally, the synergies
between robots and sensor networks will be discussed in terms of how robots can deploy, localize and relay data in a sensor network, and how a sensor network can task a moving agent such as a robot or animal.
