The Small Robot Company based in England has recently launched a robot called Wilma that uses AI to identify weeds that can then be killed using an electric current, allowing pesticide-free smart farming.
Wilma is an AI-based system that uses precise, up to date data from Tom (a scouting robot) and converts it into crop care instructions that can be verified and implemented by Dick (the world’s first non-chemical robotic weeder). The data comes in from the field to make decisions, decisions which will take into account agronomy, soil science and market conditions.
Features of Wilma:
- Weed recognition
- Per plant intelligence
- Integration with Farm Management Information Systems
Furthermore, the farmers are able to interact with Wilma via a web user interface. This allows them to efficiently see per plant intelligence in their fields once the data from the robots has been analyzed.
