Yverdon-les-Bains (Y-Parc), Switzerland, May 30th, 2018 – ecoRobotix Ltd, a Swiss company developing the next generation of weeding robots for sustainable agriculture, announces today the closing of a second financing round of CHF 10.6 million.
The smart robotic weeder of ecoRobotix will be going into serial production, thanks to a loan from the Fondation pour l’innovation technologique (Foundation for Technological Innovation).
Just a few days into spring, ecoRobotix has a beautiful new milestone to celebrate – the arrival of ten of its new robots in Essert-Pittet, the very place where the first prototype saw the light of day.
The first phase of financing of the recently founded business ecoRobotix has been successfully concluded. Three million Swiss francs have been raised. This support makes it possible for the company to go forward to production, and it will soon be marketing its robot weeder. Combining high-tech and robotics, the agricultural vehicle systematically eradicates weeds in row crops.
