Getting to know us

In 2017 four people started a new type of farm where crops were grown without pesticides using technology that resembles a robot. This resulted in a team that built several robots, leading to the development of the Robot One.

Pixelfarming offers an alternative approach for implementing a digital technology and robotics in agriculture. In the optimal situation, all crops are in the right place to achieve a maximum yield. This optimum can be calculated and predicted using computer models. After using a model, the crops can be planted, nursed and harvested using robot technology.

We believe in robotic technologies in agriculture. Pixelfarming Robotics was founded in 2019 to support the robotics transition in agriculture. We design and manufacture advanced agricultural robots to support biodiverse farming.

Pixelfarming Robotics is stated in the Netherlands at Campus Almkerk and currently, we are working on the market validation of Robot One.

Farmers

Robot One is designed for controlling weeds without using pesticides.

By combining digital technology with robust tools, an advanced machine has been built for biodiverse agriculture using smart biology. And because agriculture is not limited to one crop, Robot One is used on more than 40 crops, including green beans, carrots, sugar beet and lupine. All of this is done at production speeds for large scale farming.

A machine like Robot One takes the user's team to the next level. This means development for both robot and users. That is why the machine is equipped with an extensive learning environment and open development kit.

Our roadmap

As a Dutch market leader we expect to create international expansion with > 150 pieces of Robot One in 2022. We aim to be the reference implementation creating a Premium autonomous robot platform for sustainable agriculture.
