Orio by Naïo Technologies

Naïo Technologies is a French start-up, a pioneer and global leader in agricultural robotics. Created just over ten years ago by two passionate engineers from the agricultural sector, Gaëtan Séverac and Aymeric Barthes, Naïo Technologies is convinced that it is possible to respect and celebrate our heritage while daring to shape the future and our ecological transition towards a more environmentally friendly precision agriculture that respects ecosystems and humans. That is why Naïo develops 100% electric and autonomous robots that allow farmers to focus on higher value-added tasks (and leave the robot to take care of tasks such as sowing or weeding), reduce the labor intensity of work or even compensate for the lack of manpower.

Naïo Technologies delivers robots worldwide for vegetable and row-crop farmers (Oz and Orio) but also for winegrowers (Ted and Jo). The navigation system manages work missions with RTK GPS centimetric accuracy. Mainly used for weeding, they achieve other tasks (e.g. seeding) to fit their customers' needs.
