Ron Bernstein

Robotic researcher

Having great passion for agricultural robotics. I believe that agricultural robots have the potential to increase food production while reducing world hunger for social good. Other benefits for agricultural robots include reduced pesticides application, reducing water usage, better and productive use of human skills, reduced health risks for human in the field, and much more.
