FarmDroid was founded in 2018 by the two brothers Jens Warming and Kristian Warming together with the Danish innovation environment Syddansk Innovation.
HOW IT WORKS
The FarmDroid drives wholly on solar panels, making it a zero-emission, CO2-neutral field machine. The robots have revolutionised sowing and weeding by making it climate-friendly.
With the aid of GPS technology, FarmDroid sows the crops in the field and marks precisely where every single crop is placed. With this information it can subsequently perform mechanical weed control both between the rows and in the rows, securing effective, precise, and non-chemical weeding.
The unique sowing precision enables the robot to clean the crops closely, thereby minimizing or even eliminating the need for manual weed control.
The solar panels placed on top of the robot produce power for a battery pack that ensures up to 24 hours daily and CO2-neutral operation of the robot. You can let your FarmDroid work in the field throughout the entire season.
