Franklin Robotics from Massachusetts launched a campaign on the Kickstarter website to raise funds for the production of new Roomba-like robots that are designed to control weeds.
The device called Tertill works on solar panels. The robot can independently find weeds and destroy them. Tertill is able to identify obstacles and bypass them.
Franklin Robotics has opened pre-order for robots. The cost of one device will be 225 dollars. The first robots will be delivered to customers in March 2018.
