The The Naïo Oz is the first robot developed by Naïo. This small LeFePo4 lithium battery powered electrically driven robot can be used as a farmhand and robot for many tasks such as seeding and planting, open furrow ploughing and mechanical weeding. The small robot weighs just 180 kg and for navigation it uses RTK GNSS following reference waypoints created in the field.
Drive train type
The robot is battery-powered and electrically driven.
The tool carrier in the back can lift up to 60 kg with the new front weight kit.
The Oz is guided by GNSS and RTK corrections via a cellular network provided from a local supplier. There are two ways to plan the paths. First is so called ROBO mapping and therefore the system guides you through the menu to set A and B and set the turning direction and the distance between the paths. The second method is to use the battery powered GNSS receiver, connect it via Wi-Fi with your smartphone and lock the relevant positions in your field. Afterwards share that with your dealer or the Naïo team to create a map and upload this via USB to the robot. Obstacles are detected with the pressure sensitive sensor in the front.
