The Kilter AX-1 is a hybrid robot from Kilter which will be a spin-off from the Adigo AS in 2021. It was developed to recognise weeds in row crops with vision and to eliminate them by precision application of herbicides. It uses RTK GPS and vision technology for navigation and as a most striking detail it can spray micro-droplets of herbicide with millimetre precision. The Kilter AX-1 is one of various robot projects from Kilter and there are currently four active in Norway. The project is supported by the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme among others.
Availability: The company plans to sell the robot in Germany and Norway in 2021 for a price that is still to be determined.
