Description

Vitirover offers solar and lithium ion battery-powered autonomous robots for weeding in vineyards, orchards and tree nurseries. 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). This shepherd supervises the herd, intervening remotely if necessary. Vitirovers have a smooth contact with all obstacles like trees or vine stocks (with a zero risk of hurting or cutting a vine stock). Vitirover is currently working on a smaller robot, to work in market gardening and plots where there are more obstacles.
