Small Robot Company is creating a line of "Artificial Intelligence" robots to seamlessly handle crops in a way that preserves the environment as much as possible.
Guided by an AI system, the robots work together to "monitor, feed/weed and seed arable crops" in an effort to use non-chemical weeding as a new norm.
"We're super-excited to be working with SRC," John Toal, business development director at Tharsus told ZDNet. "They are solving one of the solvable problems in agri-tech, whereas a lot of people have focused on trying to pick fruit and stuff, which is difficult. Killing weeds is a good thing to do." AI + Robotics is making an incredible impact in the agricultural and farming industry. This system shows the potential for scaling solutions that can help sustain the human population in a healthy and sustainable way.
