Oz returns revitalised 

Since it was first commercialised some seven years ago, our Oz robot has evolved significantly. Most recently, at the start of this season, we equipped Oz with a GPS RTK guidance system, a completely unique mechanism for a weeding robot that has been designed so it can be used with a range of crops.  A

Dino’s brand new mechanical weeding service: WAAS!

Dino is our autonomous mechanical weeding robot. It weeds the land for plots of salad leaves, cabbages, leeks and other “green leaf vegetables”. It hoes multiple rows at the same time with heel sweeps or cultivator sweeps, and can also work between rows with Kress finger weeders. Several years of development and improvements later we

Ted, our vineyard robot, has been selected for the DEPHY-EXPE project!

Ted has been designed to mechanically manage and weed soil mounds around vines. It has been selected by the French Institute of Vines and Wine (IFV) to be tested on DEPHY-EXPE farms as part of the Ecophyto plan. Three project managers outline what expectations they have for our vineyard robot in these experiments. Ted selected
