Continental Adds Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) to Agriculture 

Continental and Dutch-Belgian technology company Octiva signed a collaboration agreement to develop autonomous mobile robotic solutions for horticulture applications. They will become part of Continental’s second product line “Agriculture” in the market of Autonomous Mobile Robots. Octiva was formed from the merger of Priva’s robotic solutions and Octinion’s agricultural robotics and focuses on integrated horticulture robotics solutions. Joining forces, the partners will develop an industry-leading, autonomous and reliable solution that will shape the future of horticulture.

Adding Continental's competence in safe and autonomous mobility to Octiva's market leading applications will allow the company to offer their customers new features and thereby enable additional benefits for them. Moreover, it allows Octiva to implement a focus driven strategy which will lead to a faster market entry. In the future, Octiva will focus on developing market-specific applications that allow to automate tedious and repetitive work in greenhouses such as cutting of leaves or monitoring the crops for which it is hard to find enough workers due to labour shortage. 

By joining forces with Continental, Octiva accelerates the development and industrialisation, creating the reference platform for greenhouse automation. For Continental, the collaboration is the next step in the company’s growth strategy for autonomous mobile robots. Continental will provide the motion platform that allows these applications to move autonomously and safe within greenhouses.
