The Kilter AX-1 is a fully automated farming robot that uses a deep learning neural network to map its way around weeds and crops and drop a precise amount of herbicide directly onto the weed, without touching the crop or soil. The nozzle technology reduces herbicide usage by 95%. The robot can detect seed leaves of weeds and apply micro droplets of herbicide, with a 6×6 mm spraying resolution. The learning platform is trained to differentiate the appearance of intertwined crops and their weeds. Kilter AX-1 enables intra-row weeding, even in sown crops that are notoriously difficult to weed.

Drive train type



The AX-1 uses RTK GPS and vision technology for navigation and it can spray micro-droplets of herbicide with millimeter precision.
