Ecorobotix, a Swiss agtech and artificial intelligence (AI) software company, has announced the U.S. introduction of its ARA, a system that scans the field and precision spot-sprays weeds.
ARA was launched in 2021. It has since been used in 13 European countries and, most recently, expanded geographically to Canada and South America.
ARA uses a combination of Ecorobotix’s UHP-Spray-Technology and the AI-driven Plant-by-Plant software. In less than 250 milliseconds, the system scans the field, captures real-time imagery, identifies the specified crops or weeds the farmer has chosen to treat, and executes a precise spray precision of 2.4 by 2.4 inches, all while minimizing drift.
