As farmers are getting more environment conscious, this solar powered Weed-killing Robot will make their farms more environment friendly. The conventional method of getting rid of weeds provides a threat to the environment as farmers usually dump tons of chemicals on the ground, and these methods are usually not much effective as the specific areas where the weedkiller is needed are not targeted.

To solve this problem a team of engineers at the University of Illinois have developed a Solar-powered robot that is able to sense the presence of weeds and then administer a lethal dose of a weedkiller.

This Robot moves at 3 miles per hour and utilizes GPS, ultrasonic and robotic vision to search the weeds, and priced at just $40.49 is affordable to all farmers who want their farms to be neat and environment friendly.
