OUR PROJECT IN SHORT
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.
