Herds of industrial solar robots replacing Glyphosate for maintenance of vegetation (agriculture, industry)

  • World Alliance Member
  • Featured Solution
  • Labelled Solution
Label Date June 12, 2024
From France
Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 3-4 - Commercial Scale Up / Multiple commercial Applications

The Solution is composed of herds of autonomous, AWD, industrial, connected solar robots that allow the replacement of Glyphosate or traditional engine equipment in complex large vegetation areas. The robots are 100% autonomous thanks to their solar panel, working in the GNSS limits of the plot. Intelligent circulation in the plot (IoT - AI) gives the robots the ability to get out of all-terrain traps, operating as managed fleets (Connected object, Remote control, Predictive maintenance), with a very low power consumption (1W per kg).

The Environmental Benefits

  • Up to 100kWh of produced energy per robot
  • Very low consumption: 1 W/kg which means 30 W per robot
  • The quantity of CO2 emitted in the atmosphere by the robot during its life (mainly the production of the equipment in our case) : 32 gCO2 eq / KWh or 144 gCO2 eq / Ha
  • Low consumption and creation of its energy makes the carbon footprint of Vitirover solution 12 times lower than electrical lawn mower, and 50 times lower than gasoline lawn mower

The Financial Benefits

  • With Vitirover as a Service in vineyards, the saving is min 15%. With the purchase of Vitirover robots, the payback is 3 years and with huge saving afterwards as operating costs are extremely low
  • Savings are also important compared to mainstream solutions thanks to good image in terms of ecology, technology, respect for the planet and for human being (no chemical, no strenuous jobs)
