Vitirover offers a fleet of solar and lithium ion battery-powered autonomous robots for weeding in agriculture. The robots use GPS and AI to navigate and are deployed on plots during the growing season. A shepherd/supervisor unit is connected to all the robots (maximum 50 per shepherd) and this supervises the herd, intervening remotely if necessary – for instance for remote maintenance or when entering a new plot or polygon on a map. There are currently 110 units active in France, Belgium and Austria.

Availability: Vitirover is provided as a service per maintained hectare, for a cost of € 3,000/ha/year. Next developments include a version that is able to work on slopes up to 45% and a version that can manage hectares with over 10,000 obstacles per hectare (vine trees for instance).
