Smart Farming: Sustainably Clearing Fields of Weeds
Using camera sensors, the new smart spraying technology is able to differentiate between crops and weeds, and uses special application technology to target weeds with pesticides, thus reducing environmental impact. “With smart spraying, we are bringing more intelligence to the fields,” says Dr. Johannes-Jörg Rüger, head of Bosch’s Commercial Vehicles and Off-Road unit. What sets it apart from previous systems in the market is that they only provide “green detection,” but cannot distinguish between crops and weeds.
