Carbon Robotics’ Autonomous Weeder Zaps Weeds with Lasers
This agricultural bot was designed to zap weeds with lasers, reducing the need for chemical weeding methods. From Carbon Robotics:
The Carbon Robotics Autonomous Weeder offers groundbreaking technology and is designed for row crops with 200 acres to tens of thousands of acres. A single robot will weed 15-20 acres per day and replace several deployments of hand-weeding crews. Since its founding in 2018, the company has worked closely with farmers to develop its technology, which supports effective and efficient weed elimination for both conventional and organic farmers.
