SwarmFarm Robotics (Innovation Alley)


Innovation Alley


CRDC and GRDC partnered with the Department of Industry on the Business Research and Innovation Initiative (BRII) to solve a major challenge: revolutionising spray applications to reduce drift. The goal is to discover unique ways to reduce off-target spray drift, improve efficacy of application, and avoid damage to the environment. Two companies were chosen for the ‘proof of concept’ phase, receiving $1m each: LX and SwarmFarm Robotics.

  • LX: recognised for its creation of an easy to use, globally scalable and real-time spray application feedback system using AI technology, called ‘Maverick’.

SwarmFarm Robotics: recognised for developing a system for robots to make informed, autonomous decisions on pesticide application based on actual weather conditions.
