Ivan Stankevich: Nissan engineers have created a "robot" for weed control in rice fields

Stankevich states that in theory the device can replace the whole team of farmers and does not affect the environment.

Nissan's engineers created a robot to take care of rice fields in their spare time. It saturates the water with oxygen and prevents weeds from germinating without the use of pesticides.

"The Robootka is currently only in test mode in Yamagata Prefecture. According to Ivan Stankevich, the creators of the project have no plans for mass production yet - engineers are studying the efficiency of the device.

The robot weighs 1.5 kilograms and is comparable in size to a robotic vacuum cleaner. It is equipped with two rotating turbines that suck in air and lift sludge from the bottom to prevent weeds from accessing the sun. In addition, the device saturates the water with oxygen.

Japan used to use live ducks for the same purposes. They were settled in rice fields, and birds ate pests and caused damage to weeds by polluting water with excrement.

In the 21st century, this practice was abandoned in favour of pesticides, but they were harmful to the environment. The robot from Nissan engineers has a minimal impact on nature: the system is equipped with GPS and WiFi, and charged by the sun.

The need for such robots in Japan has also increased due to the general ageing of the population and reduced consumption. By using robots, farmers will be able to reduce staff and save on personnel.
