… are a multidisciplinary team with backgrounds in computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering, geoecology and UX design, heavily supported by local farmers. The combination of their skillsets allows them to combine state of the art technologies into new robotic applications.
Their solution is a robot which autonomously drives through the field, recognises weeds from crops, and mechanically removes weeds, thus eliminating the requirement to use herbicides. Therefore they contribute to the transition to a circular economy and a more sustainable form of agriculture.
