Deepfield Robotics develops weeding solutions for sustainable farming. Our plant recognition camera Aquila uses deep learning to distinguish plants: it is used for precise spot-spraying of herbicide and for intra-row hoeing applications. Our weeding robots use Aquila to detect weeds: they will treat fields autonomously without supervision, allowing mass adoption of herbicide-saving weeding methods.
We are developing a high-precision spraying robot for row crops, meadows and intercropping cultures, with the intention of reducing the negative ecological impact of modern agriculture. Called AVO, our robot contributes to environmentally friendly agriculture, focusing on soil and water conservation. The solar power supply and its rechargeable and interchangeable batteries provide it complete energy autonomy.
IFM electronic is an international group specialized in automation solutions, instrumentation and industrial detection to assess, control and manage. Through its intelligent sensors, predictive maintenance solutions, traceability, 3D vision and data collection system, IFM electronic places the industry of the future at the heart of its development strategy.
Naïo Technologies is a French AgTech company that was founded in 2011 by robotic engineers Aymeric Barthes and Gaëtan Séverac. The company is based in Toulouse, France, and designs, manufactures and markets farmbot solutions in close collaboration withfarmers.
Their weeding robots respect both the environment and man: they provide a solution to tackle farm worker shortage, reduce thestrenuous physical workload and limit the use of chemical weedkillers.
To date, nearly 150 Naïo robots tackle weeding issues across the world: the Oz robot is designed for small-scale vegetable farms, the Dino robot works in large-scale vegetable fields, and the Ted robot handles weeding in vineyards.
At the end of 2019, the Naïo Technologies team counted 60 employees, for a turnover of 2.8 million Euros in 2018.
NovAtel®, part of Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence division, offers engineering and integration services that carefully design and custom-build each automated platform to enable the accelerated development and deployment of your unmanned applications.
Pixelfarming Robotics designs and manufactures advanced agricultural robots. The company was founded in 2019 to revolutionize how we farm, with the ultimate goal of enabling a self-sustaining ecology. We have developed Robot Zero and recently Robot One to do its work autonomously. Equipped with various sensors and cameras. The ability to use different tools and completely electric. The aim is to continue the development of agro robots for sustainable agricultural solutions.
The RobAgri association aims to develop and structure the sector of the agricultural robotics while addressing several key issues for agriculture, such as the ecological transition and the drudgery of work. It gathers 65 members, including startups, industrial groups, robotics laboratories, while associating agricultural sectors.
RobAgri produces knowledge and methods on adapting robots to the farmers’ needs: safety, testing, standardization… all while promoting technology transfer.
Septentrio designs, manufactures and sells highly accurate GPS/GNSS receivers, for demanding applications requiring accuracies in the decimeter or centimeter range, even under difficult conditions. Whether it’s on the high sea, in scintillation prone areas or at high latitudes, our customers know that Septentrio receivers deliver fast, accurate and reliable positions. In urban canyons, under canopies or even under circumstances where there is deliberate interference, our receivers make our customers excel. As a leader in the GNSS market, Septentrio works with the world’s leading agricultural machinery manufacturers to counter challenges by providing farmers with cm-level accurate GNSS positioning.
By integrating Septentrio’s GNSS+ technology – RTK receivers, antennas and base stations into the precision agriculture system, cultivators around the globe can maximize yields. They would know the exact area of their land, eliminate waste by knowing exactly how much fertilizer to use, and minimize machine wear through precision guidance.
SITIA is an industrial SME created in 1986 renowned from its origin in the implementation of applied innovation. SITIA has two industrial activities.
The first is the design and production of test benches and special machines for the automotive, aeronautics, agricultural machinery and international technical centers. This CE machine design and manufacturing activity allows him to be involved in the R&D processes of major players in vehicle manufacturers.
The second activity is Robotics, it begins in 2010 with the filing of a first patent. In 2014, SITIA launched its development program for an autonomous tractor. At the end of 2019, SITIA launches the TREKTOR brand which is the first hybrid autonomous tractor!
TREKTOR, with its innovative design, makes it possible to work with different cultures (viticulture, market gardening, arboriculture, vegetable cultivation in open fields). It embeds your existing tools and is built to work for a long time! Hybrid and powerful, it works the time you have decided. Finally, security is at the heart of TREKTOR’s development!
In 2020, SITIA will develop its network of professional distributors in France and abroad. If you wish to be part of it, contact us at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
