Many dairies are quite automated, limiting the possibilities for the implementation of robotic technologies. Possibilities that do exist may be classified into three categories:
  1. 1.

    Automation of operations where a wide variety of products produced or other requirements for flexibility preclude the use of fixed automation,

  2. 2.

    Increased inspection and quality control through use of computer vision.

  3. 3.

    Manual operations which have not yet been automated, where robotic systems may be more cost-effective than specialized equipment.
