Pixelfarming Robotics is working on a range of robots for pixel farming. The initial robot was developed in 2017, followed by Robot Zero in 2018 and Robot One in 2019. It is electrically powered with solar power panels on the roof and the solar energy is stored in lithium batteries. It weighs about 1,100 kg and uses FPRS as management software in which both routes and tasks are planned and assigned to one or more robots. The Pixelfarming Robot One performs tasks autonomously and navigates along assigned routes using GPS, vision and waypoints. It uses multiple (a maximum of ten) individually controlled robotic arms. Crop recognition with 3D cameras is used to select specific tasks. Robot Pixie is planned as an assistant supply robot for Robot One in 2022.
Availability: In 2021, the Pixelfarming Robot One will be available in the Netherlands and Europe for € 185,000 or as a service for € 995 per day.
