Antobot’s technology enables greater functionality in compact agri-robots
Smaller, faster, cheaper and more durable intelligent mobile robots will be possible with Antobot Ltd technology, which offers twice the ‘brain’ power of commercially available mobile robots in a third of the size. The company has recently been awarded Innovate UK and Eastern Agri-Tech Growth Initiative grants to help develop its mobile agriculture robot prototypes.
Howard Wu is founder of Antobot, based in Cambridge and China. He explains: “Our first commercial product will be a highly compact 4-wheel-drive scouting robot capable of counting fruits, determining fruit ripeness and size whilst also mapping fruiting locations in three dimensions to allow picking at a later stage.”
