The Art of Blasting Weeds


Technology enabling farmers to blast weeds with pinpoint lasers  could change agriculture, akin to the advent of the gin, tractor, or combine.

Computer artificial intelligence is patterned after human vision through 20 cameras that target, identify and track weeds. The trained artificial intelligence  is able to focus on a given crop, identify it and then direct eight lasers on other vegetation in the field including volunteer crops and weeds. In real time, while the vehicle moves, the image processing and laser firing all happen simultaneously  allowing the autonomous LaserWeeder to obliterate weeds while moving  1-2 mph.
