Abstract [sv]
The main purpose of this project was to develop a new efficient weed control tool. The tool is to be mounted at the rear of an autonomous mobile robot. The robot is design to identify sugar beet plants among weed by image processing. After the image analysis the robot shall perform weed control within the row of sugar beet plants. The purpose of automatize weed control by a mechanical cultivator is to increase the amount of ecological grown sugar beets. Extending the amount of ecological grown sugar beets is difficult due to the fact that weed control is performed by manpower, which results in high costs. The produced weed tool consists of a DC-motor, which drives two metal rods in a semicircle curve. On each side of the motor a photo sensor is placed to ensure that the rods always stay in their end positions when passing a plant. The tool is yet only tested in a lab but results shows that the principle works as expected.
