The current edition of the DRIVEN magazine

DRIVEN magazine for drive technology enthusiasts

We are witnessing the start of a robotic evolution that is sweeping through all aspects of agriculture. This in-cludes drones that monitor fields, spray specific plants, or send information to other robots on the ground that pull-out weeds and harvest fruit. The current edition of driven, the maxon magazine, is dedicated to agriculture and it provides the answers to the questions of where we are and where we are going in automated agriculture.

DRIVEN also looks at an inspiring application for children with walking disabilities, developed by a Canadian company. Additionally, maxon employees tell us about the challenges they faced when the demand for motors in medical devices skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic. DRIVEN brings you interviews, application stories and news from the world of drive technology, and is published in three languages. The current edition is now available online and printed copies may be requested, free of charge at
