Dutch robots doing good

Techstination feature for Friday, January 17, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Building robots to do some good.   The Dutch delegation from Techleap at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show….were showing robotic technology….designed to clean up beaches around the world…and help farmers get rid of weeds without chemicals.     Martijn Lukaart from the delegation says Odd.bot can use machine vision to tell the difference between weeds and crops..

“We now primarily focus on organic farmers because they are now are forced to do it manually.”

On the beach cleaning side is a robotic machine called Project BB…

“This is a robot that can drive autonomously over the beaches to detect small litter.”

From plastic bottles to things as small as cigarette butts and clean them up.    They are looking to form partnerships around the world.   Find more at www.projectbb.org.
