According to the preface of the Proceedings of the 7th Field Robot Event 2009:

It was in September 2002 when the story started: in a train back home from Budapest, where Wageningen Agrotechnology students won the vision award of the EurAgEng-Conference. That price-winning vision was about robots in agriculture. Why shouldn’t this vision become more real and why shouldn’t more students participate in such exciting activities – e.g. in a contest for small robots competing in a real field? The idea was born and preparations started immediately to invite students from all over Europe for the 1st Field Robot Event in June 2003.

The first video in this playlist is a presentation given last year at the announcement of the event. The rest were taken at the event itself, and show the nature of the competition as well as something of the level of sophistication of the competitors.

This year’s Field Robot Event (FRE 2012) began today and runs through Saturday. I will bring together what reports I am able to find once the dust settles, but meanwhile you can view videos from past years’ events by entering “Field Robot Event” in YouTube’s search field.
