Herbicides are some of the most damaging chemicals commonly used in today’s agriculture. The overuse of herbicides to combat weeds is endangering our environment. Our mission is to provide a sustainable and herbicide-free solution for weed-control without burdening our farmers.

To reach this goal, we are developing an autonomous weeding robot which uses vision recognition to identify and destroy weeds. The result? A user-friendly and time-efficient weeding solution that enables farmers to counter herbicide overuse.

In order to turn this vision into a reality, we have put together a team of ten highly motivated students, eight expert coaches and supportive sponsors at ETH Zurich. Together, we have created Rowesys – Robotic Weeding System.
