The Ekobot GEN-2 is battery powered and uses a combination of GPS, LiDAR, IMU and vision to navigate in row-grown vegetables. The company says the most striking detail is its ability to remove weeds as close as 1 cm to the crop with no or minimal interference with the crop. Weed removal is done without using chemicals. There are currently three Ekobot GEN-2 robots being tested in Sweden.
Availability: Pilot installations are planned in the Netherlands and Sweden in 2021.
