Weed elimination, a necessity for agriculture, currently uses chemical herbicides, resulting in health and environmental problems. Over $25 Billion are spent per year in herbicides. We want to replace hazardous chemicals with robotic technology.
We are creating systems that can distinguish crops from weeds in order to kill the weeds without harming the crops or the environment. Our systems use cameras, computer vision, and machine learning algorithms. We are working with leading experts in this area including professors from UC Davis and Stanford as well as leading crop producers, all of whom are excited about our vision.
