The ecoRobotix Autonomous Robotic Weeder is a revolutionary piece of equipment for modern farmers that will enable them to seamlessly keep their crops as healthy as possible without the need to manually do all the dirty work.

The robot is topped with solar panels on the top that will work to provide continuous power to the onboard battery pack so long as there is any level of sun available, which will result in up to 12 hours of operation per day. This is paired with a GPS RTK, onboard camera and a number of different sensors that will analyze the ground, pinpoint weeds and provide the proper amount of herbicide to take care of it.

The ecoRobotix Autonomous Robotic Weeder is set for a commercial launch starting in 2019.
