Using artificial intelligence and robotics to increase farming efficiency whilst reducing the environmental impact. Small Robot Company is utilising Farming as a Service (FaaS) and has created three robots to perform a farmer's usual tasks. These lightweight machines do not damage and compact soil, as heavy tractors do which leads to decreased plant growth and increased time spent ploughing to revive the topsoil. Their three robots, named Tom, Dick and Harry, each have unique responsibilities. Tom collects information on the farm, Dick looks after crops and Harry plants individual seeds. The company's AI, dubbed Wilma, provides a digital scope of the farm and dictates which plants require the most attention Small Robot Company has already received a £5,000 deposit from 20 farms and manufactured concepts of their machines.
