Sensor-Guided Crop Sprayer
The WEEDIt crop sprayer from the Netherlands uses up to 90 percent less herbicide by only spraying weeds – not the ground or the crop – with high-speed precision nozzles.
  Traveling at speeds up to 15 mph, it uses red light technology to find weeds and spray with solenoid-operated, narrow fan angle nozzles. There’s a sensor every 3 ft., each of which is fitted with 5 “eyes”.
