Google has developed a robot that will work in the fields and take care of agricultural products by performing health checks.
Is there a lack of minerals and fertilizers in the soil?
The robot, called Mineral and powered by solar energy, walks around the fields without damaging the plants and follows the products with cameras and advanced sensors. By analyzing the properties of the plants such as color, size and smell, the robot determines which mineral is missing in the soil and provides the necessary nutritional support to that part of the field, making the products more efficient.
If the robot, which is still in the testing phase, turns into a commercial product in its final form, it will play a major role in increasing productivity in agricultural enterprises.
