Aigamo Robot – ‘Duck Robot’ keeps weeds out of rice paddies


Robot ‘duck’ keeps weeds out of rice paddies

For rice farmers, ducks have been a viable way to keep their crops healthy — they destroy weeds, eat bugs and fertilize crops without using harmful chemicals.

And now, a Nissan technician might have an alternative when fowl isn’t an option. A robot ‘duck’ that roams rice paddies, muddying the water to prevent weeds from getting enough sunlight to grow. It’s a personal project, realized with GPS, a WiFi connection and solar power to minimize its environmental impact.
