Years of development and feedback from growers have led us to develop a new boom mounted design that can be retro-fitted to existing spray booms. The individual units will be available to purchase by the metre and tailored to detect and spray weeds in your target crop or pasture.
In 2019/20 we delivered two 3-4 metre spraying units to combat pasture weeds for two Australian landholders. In 2020/21, we are delivering new smart spot spraying solutions for landholders in broadacre cropping, pastoral land and horticulture.
deep learning on the edge
We apply the latest tools and techniques in machine vision, deep learning and robotics to deliver a new best practice weed management tool. Our detection systems use deep neural networks to detect weed species from any background (crop, soil or pasture) using image features like shape, colour and texture.
We have a team of world-class PhDs and experienced engineers who have published some of our deep learning breakthroughs to esteemed international journals.

field tested prototypes
We have been developing weed detection systems with extensive in-field testing for the past five years. In 2019, our ATV prototype was trialed across five locations in QLD and NSW.
Field tests of the ATV prototype on a cattle farm Malanda QLD showed that up to 89% herbicide reduction is possible compared to blanket spray application for Navua Sedge in pasture, While trials at Spring Ridge NSW, showed that up to 95% herbicide reduction is possible targeting Turnip Weed in an Oats crop instead of broadcast spraying.
In addition to serving the commercial broadacre market, we believe in addressing the needs of small-to-mid sized farming operations, who have until now not benefited from innovative spot-spraying solutions.
We have developed robust, modular and scalable green-on-green weed detection systems that can be retro-fitted to any existing spray boom. We are always keen to talk with landholders keen to be early adopters of this new technology.
