Robot and Renewable

cheap agricultural robot, programmable and powered by renewables.


Please, take few seconds to imagine an agricultural robot powered by solar energy, that works without human involvement, and then read further!

So how does it look like? Most probable it has at least four wheels, lots of sensors, maybe cameras and so on. Well, this would be a great robot, but too complicated and from here, too expensive. The design that we’re working on will solve these issues so any farmer can have a cheap, independent robot, powered by renewable energy, that is able to do digging, weeding, planting, watering. Having this, one would have a guaranteed low price for agricultural workings for a long period of time, also the robot will save time, because it’s programmable so it knows what to do by itself. The robot will save money that would’ve been spent for fossil fuels, and because the weeding is done mechanically, the farmer wouldn’t need genetically modified seeds.
