ST-BRUNO-DE-MONTARVILLE, QC, July 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – We are very pleased to announce that Nexus Robotics Inc. has just been awarded $2.6M in grants from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), which will be used to create the next generation of our robots and continue to develop intensively to provide farmers with even more environmentally friendly benefits and bring a truly revolutionary product to the agrotechnology global market. “This grant not only confirms our technological progress and the potential of our business model, but also confirms our ESG status and ensures our ability to pursue our R&D roadmap,” says Luc Labbé, CEO.
Using a unique combination of articulated arms, artificial intelligence and advanced algorithms to remove weeds and treat diseased plants, Nexus Robotics’ autonomous robots help increase crop yields. In measurable terms, a single Nexus robot can help reduce the application of herbicides and fungicides by 50% and makes better use of manual labor by replacing up to five people in weeding-related tasks.
Right now, we are deploying the second generation of Nexus Robotics field robots to Canadian fields for the summer, all of which will be moving to California later this year to enable continuous improvement of the AI software that powers the machines during the winter months. Nexus Robotics will be present and will present its robot at FIRA 2022-UNITED STATES congress in Fresno, California of October 18 to 20, 2022.
