Brunel Robotic Engineering Society invites you to join them for a lunchtime event with guest speaker Ben Scott-Robinson, founder of the Small Robot Company – an agri-tech start up commercialising a deceptively simple idea: small robots not big tractors.
Ben will be joining us at 1pm in Room 139 of the Howell Building, on Monday 12th November, to discuss the technical development and ultimate success of their first robot, ‘Jack’.
Because unfortunately big tractors are neither efficient nor environmentally friendly, 95% of energy is currently used ploughing.And ploughing is only necessary because of heavy machinery crushing soil.
The Small Robot Company building robots that will seed and care for each individual plant in your crop. They will only feed and spray the plants that need it, giving them the perfect levels nutrients and support, with no waste.
