(RoboticsTrends) The Tertill is a protytype weeding robot being developed for home gardens. Tertill will be a solar-powered, autonomous robot that uses a small weed whacker to rid a garden of weeds, avoiding plants and obstacles along the way. Ideally, Tertill will be able to perform other tasks as well, including monitoring plant and soil health and keeping unwanted animals (squirrels, rabbits, etc.) that eat plants out of the garden.
Franklin Robotics is the developer of the Terbill. The team includes Joe Jones, the first employee of iRobot and inventor of the Roomba.
