The world’s first non-chemical weeding robot for cereal crops, made by agri-tech startup Small Robot Company, has successfully identified and killed weeds at a field trial in Hampshire.
The wheeled robot uses igus delta robot arms to position a 'zapper' and deploy ‘lightning strikes’ to kill weeds. Delta robot arms from igus were selected for their precision, low-cost and lubrication-free engineering.
