Fieldin, a smart farm operations management company for high-value crops, has acquired Midnight Robotics. The purchase creates a combination of sensor-based operational farming platform with autonomous driving technologies.
Fieldin is deploying its combined platform in major farms in California with plans to expand in the future. Midnight robotics autonomous driving technology enables an all-in-one service to maximize productivity on the farm. The platform is designed to collect farming data and turn it into actionable insights and offers guided decision-making and autonomous execution of driverless machinery.
“Many people think that autonomous tractors are some magic solution, but at the end of the day, they’re just machinery—your autonomous farm can only be as good as your farm management data, and that’s why this acquisition is driving the autonomous farming revolution forward,” said Boaz Bachar, CEO and co-Founder of Fieldin. “By acquiring Midnight Robotics, we’re helping farmers close the loop from insight to autonomous action, so they know exactly what they need to do and execute it autonomously, all through the same platform.”
