Robotic Perception is developing autonomous vehicles for farming that provide precision spray solutions, mechanical treatment for weeds, and continuous monitoring of crops and plants using high-resolution imagery and a web-based crop management interface.
The robotic platform integrates high-resolution imagery, inertial sensors, and 3D sensors with actuators that include a spray module and mechanical treatment for weeds. Proprietary software supports accurate operation even in GPS-denied areas for extended periods of time and uses AI and deep-learning modules for crop and plant condition analysis and improved yields.
The company’s other verticals include consultancy services on navigation in GPS-denied environments for the Israeli airspace industry’s autonomous vehicles in the defence sector and the development of a navigation system for drones in GPS-denied environments using sensor fusion of image analysis and inertial sensors.
The company was awarded funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, under the project agROBOfood.
