Delivery robots of a different kind, the Small Robot Company aims to seed, feed and weed crops for farmers.
Offering, FaaS, farming as a service with their three rovers, Tom, Dick and Harry and overseeing the service with Wilma AI software.
With my other hat on, I chatted with Ben Scott-Harper who unpacked the companies proposition for me.
I see huge potential for ironing out autonomy issues in a pretty demanding environment. A great deal of precision will be required to truly monitor each plant. Muddy fields will put also sort of stress on the rovers, a real test.
I am watching the Small Robot Company with keen interest.
