A major issue in growing crops is the cost of removing weeds. Weeds must be removed as they can deprive crops of nutrients and increase the risk of pests, but chemical herbicides can also damage crops. Therefore, a robot ‘The Autonomous Weeder ‘ was developed that autonomously weeds without damaging soil or crops by pinpointing weeds with AI and irradiating them with a carbon dioxide laser.


Weeds are a big problem for farmers, hiring people to weed them can be costly, but using chemical herbicides can damage crops and soil.
Labor shortages are also an issue for farmers.

In the image below, you can see that the laser is radiated from the bottom of the car body.

The Autonomous Weeder is equipped with a camera that projects the front, rear, and directly below the vehicle body, allowing you to check the situation remotely.

In particular, 12 cameras are installed directly under the main body, and an in-vehicle computer equipped with AI scans the ground to identify weeds.

It was also captured that weeds were burning after the laser was actually irradiated.

It does not require human power, so you can work day or night.

The Autonomous Weeder can remove more than 100,000 weeds per hour and can work on 15 to 20 acres a day (about 61,000 to 81,000 square meters).

The area that humans can weed in a day is about 4000 square meters.

After each row, it will automatically turn in a safe place and move on to the next row.

The Autonomous Weeder enables chemical-free weeding and is ‘organic’ certified by the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA).

The price of The Autonomous Weeder is not disclosed, but it can be used for leasing. However, the 2021 model is already sold out,

and it is said that it is accepting pre-orders for 2022.

Carbon Robotics has unveiled the third generation of its Autonomous Weeder,

A smart farming robot that identifies weeds and then destroys them with high-power lasers.

The weedkiller challenge: Weeds compete with plants for space, sunlight, and soil nutrients.

They can also make it easier for insect pests to harm crops, so weed control is a top concern for farmers.

Chemical herbicides can kill pesky plants, but they can also contaminate water and affect soil health. Weeds can be pulled out by hand,

But it’s unpleasant work, and labor shortages are already a huge problem in the agriculture industry.
