The Robotanist - The Robotics Institute Carnegie Mellon UniversitySkip to content
The Robotanist is designed to navigate beneath the canopy of row crops such as sorghum or corn while carrying a plant manipulator and an array of non-contact sensors. The vast quantity of data collected is used to help plant breeders and geneticists map phenotypes to genetic markers, which in turn will substantially improve the rate of genetic gain.
