Moo-tiful solution

| More
Technologists are keen to apply technological solutions to every problem and the challenge of rounding up cows on dairy farms is no exception. 

Researchers at Sydney University have put their heads together and come up with something that is udderly ground-breaking.  

Their bovine solution is Rover. No, not the four-legged tail wagging kind of Rover - the four-wheeled, computer code crunching kind.

Unlike canine herders, the robotic prototype cow herder is able to glide along at a steady pace, allowing cows to moo-ve at their own speed, which is important to reducing lameness, according to the BBC

The cows apparently think the robot is moo-tiful and rather than being overly cow-ful, they have been quite accepting, according to the researchers, who are now working on a fully automated version.
