Project description

The aim of this project is the further development of an existing prototype (Bonirob) for automatic weed control of organic carrots from 1-lane to 8-lane operation. In the project, the system should be developed taking into account user-friendliness, area output, and the costs of development.

The prototype system currently being developed is to be duplicated and parallelized with special consideration of the multi-module solution.

The system is achieved by the parallelization of multiple detection and destruction units and conversion to an 8-track system. By developing a system that attaches to a towing vehicle, it is accepted by users and has user-friendliness. This is also due to the gradual increase in performance and success in practical use through technical innovations such as special IT infrastructure.

Project work in agricultural practice takes place in three phases: commissioning of the designed towing-vehicle infrastructure, field testing of the optimized towing vehicle infrastructure as an integrated overall system. At the end of the project there is an evaluation of the overall system in terms of quality and area efficiency, as well as a initial economic and ecological assessments of the new system.
