ecoRobotix is a developer of autonomous weeding robots, which help farmers to produce healthier food with a more efficient and sustainable use of herbicides.

ecoRobotix aims to offer precise, safe, reliable and affordable robotic solutions that simplify farmers’ life to produce healthy food.

ecoRobotix was founded in 2011 by Aurelien G. Demaurex & Steve Tanner and is based in Yverdon-les-bains, Vaud, Switzerland.

ecoRobotix develops, produces and sells innovative farming machines that require low energy and that reduce the negative ecological impact of modern agriculture, while keeping costs competitive.

ecoRobotix is the first ever completely autonomous machine for a more ecological and economical weeding of row crops, meadows and intercropping cultures.
