When speaking of high precision weeding, Ecorobotix means:
1- Recognition of each species: crops and weed species, to map precisely each plant location;
2- The size of spraying pixels: the best time is at an early stage;
3- Accuracy: as the camera is positioned approx. one metre before the sprayer, the robot movement needs to be highly accurate to spray at the right time;
4- The spraying patterns: the issue is to be as precise as possible to not spray on the crops;
5- Output of the robot.
What are the benefits of high precision weeding, aka "spot spraying"?
- Way less chemicals sprayed
- On row spraying
- Less phytotoxicity, and thus higher yields.
