the time has come for the robots to pull our weeds

It sounds like technology from a science fiction movie: robots that automatically take care of a farmer’s crops. But according to Danish researchers, it won’t be long before this is a reality.

”We’re in the process of developing a fully automatic robotic system that can automatically detect weeds and spray them. The system works by means of small unmanned helicopters and small ground vehicles,” says PhD fellow Karl Damkjær Hansen, of Aalborg University’s Department of Electronic Systems Automation & Control.
