An agricultural robot that sprays only where necessary and destroys redundant weeds
Washington: Even today, in the fields of poor countries, surplus weeds are removed by hand, which takes a lot of time. But a robot can do this automatically and spray the pesticide only where it is needed.
Solix sprayer can work automatically with solar energy, its powerful camera can destroy the weeds growing around the plant thanks to AI. Its special sensors monitor the plant from the ground up and spray only where needed. It does not require any human guidance.
The robot is called Solix Sprayer which has been successfully tested on soybean, wheat and corn crops. In initial trials it has helped reduce unnecessary pesticide use by 70% because we are still pouring pesticides indiscriminately on crops. It can spray up to 100 acres of crops in a day.
Developed by the Brazilian and American company Solantech. We know that, on the one hand, pesticides that are sprayed around the world to kill unwanted weeds remain in the environment for years. Then they are also very dangerous for humans. Therefore, thanks to robots, they are used only as needed, saving manpower, time, money and the pesticide itself.
The good thing about this robot is that it creates a digital map of where it passes which can be used again and again. Thanks to solar energy and battery, it can work continuously for 24 hours.
