|Description of the Challenge||Our routine work consist in spraying small plot field experiments (10 to 30m²) with pesticides and biologicals to evaluate their efficacy and safety. Our operators typically use a backpack sprayer with a lateral (or vertical) boom to spray the whole plot width (crop height) The challenge is to put this sprayer on wheels with a remote control : our operator stands at the edge of the field to control spraying and he is protected from direct exposure|
In EU, hundreds of field researchers are involved in field spraying on small plots that are not adapted to tractor use.
|Fundamental requirements and constraints||
The difficulties are related to unstable field ground and requires flexibility to adapt to different crops and field situations (variable pathways, crop height etc)
