AutoWeed is a concept for an autonomous robot to perform weeding duties in fields.
The AutoWeed will use a Micro Cute (small Power Cube)and solar panel for power, hydraulically driven tracks for mobility and steering, a weed puller and a computer with camera for control and optical weed discrimination. The system will employ a GPS navigation system and will operate within an established boundary (ie: a field). The objective is to navigate between rows, dispatching weeds and leave desired plants untouched.
Currently, there is only the conceptual drawing / design of the initial prototype.
