As in other industries, information and electrical technologies provide agriculture with increased efficiency, reliability, and safety.  The future of this field is very promising, and includes combining computers and sensors with mechanical systems.

Information and electrical technologies are used for modern agriculture, from radio-frequency identification collars on livestock, to electronic yield monitors and obstacle sensors on harvesters. We can fond them throughout automated harvesting and sorting of produce, and using satellite-based guidance systems and robotic actuators to create tractors and combines that steer themselves across the field.
