Seattle Times. In California’s Salinas Valley engineers from Silicon Valley is experimenting with the Lettuce Bot, a machine that can ”thin” a field of lettuce in the time it takes about 20 workers to do the job by hand.
”Researchers are now designing robots for these most delicate crops by integrating advanced sensors, powerful computing, electronics, computer vision, robotic hardware and algorithms, as well as networking and high precision GPS localization technologies. Most ag robots won’t be commercially available for at least a few years.”
