The main classes of problems of exact farming, solved with the involvement of robotics, are discussed. The use of precision navigation systems for robotic agricultural machines allows us to determine the actual soil parameters, calculate the cartograms for fertilizer application, taking into account the spatial variability of the agricultural contour. A promising method is the use of unmanned aerial vehicles for surveying and selecting intra field agricultural contours from a small height. To reduce the variability of soil characteristics in the fields, various robotic means of processing and preparation are used, including for leveling the soil. Given the regularity of planting crops on the fields, automatic systems of parallel driving of agricultural machinery are gaining popularity. Based on the analysis of modern robotic agro systems, promising areas for further research are formulated.
