Blue River Technology is a California-based machinery enterprise with a focus on designing, producing, and selling computer-vision-based robotics that can be used to aid the agriculture industry, specifically in cotton weeding.
The company has created a machine called "See & Spray". The machine uses computer vision and artificial intelligence to detect, identify, and make management decisions about individual plants in the farmer's field so that plants which are essential to farmers and consumers are not unintentionally destroyed by herbicides.The machine has robotic nozzles to ensure accurate spraying of herbicides.Furthermore, the machine sprays only the necessary weeds with herbicides in an attempt to curb weeds that are resistant to herbicides, as these are growing in number and could eventually greatly hinder farmers' produce and production capabilities.
