Dahlia Robotics GmbH, and organic farmers Biotop Oberland e.G. and Franziska und Johannes Blind GbR participate as a consortium in the agROBOfood Innovation Experiment to further develop, test and bring to market Dahlia Robotics’ Multi-row Modular Robotic Weed Remover (“MM-ROWER”).

This modular concept focuses on mechanical intra-row weed removal through a solar-powered autonomous platform which uses AI-based on-board image processing to segment a video stream into crops vs. weeds on pixel-level.

In addition to lowering the cost of weed removal, this technological solution is expected to offer in the future pest and disease, stress, lack of nutrients early warning system, as well as yield estimation and phenotyping functionality.

Start Date: December 2020
