Aigen makes small autonomous solar powered weeding robots.
Aigen is an agrobotics company that makes small autonomous weeding robots. The robots are completely solar powered and use a combination of mechanical and electrical weeding dependent on the size of the weed. Aigen's first market will be the sugar beets where farmers face glyphosate resistant weeds and regulatory pressure to get rid of glyphosate all together.
