The ecoRobotix is a weeding robot that is able to do all weeding tasks on the farm purely by itself. An intelligent weeding machine, the automaton can go exploring croplands all by itself, having its way among the vegetation without harming any of them. Best of all, it can recognize weeds and deal with them with weed killer, letting it swap customarily manual farm work with a completely robotic substitute.
The ecoRobotix is a 4-wheeled robot that’s powered by 2 electric drive motors, with wheels built to ride over dirt areas, so it will go over any farmland with ease. It possesses solar panels on top (380W) to produce a constant source of power for the built in battery, letting it operate so long as there is even a sliver of sunlight, so there is no reason to dock and recharge towards the end of the day.
The ecoRobotix is expected to handle around 3 hectares of area a day, although the precise coverage depends on the concentration of weeds in the cropland, given it will move slower in places that there’s a high concentration of undesirable vegetation. As such, the manufacturer suggests using the equipment after a regular treatment, counting on the robot to ruin any wild plant that arises after the first weeding to prevent taking too long to navigate a sizable farmland. If utilized this way, they calculate one robot can deal with around 12 hectares of land by itself, moving by every inch of it one or more times weekly.
