Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An agricultural weeding robot was developed based on direct herbicide application method. Based on weeds identification data, an embedded computer sent instructions to a micro controller, which controlled the robotic arms to locate, cut weeds and applied chemicals simultaneously. The experimental results showed that only a small amount of regular spraying dosage was needed if chemicals were applied to do weeding directly without any drift.
