Transportation and food production systems are undergoing a revolution in the areas of robotics, automation, data-based decision-making, and mapping. These innovations promise fundamental changes in crop selection, harvesting practices, agricultural employment, food safety, and production efficiency. Likely changes in the coming decades – based on automation and data-intensive farming practices - may even dwarf all technological growth that has occurred in agricultural systems since the start of mechanization within agriculture over the previous 150 years.
