With Tertill, gardeners can now enjoy weed-free vegetable and flower gardens, without the monotony and frustration of weeding.
Tertill is an autonomous, weatherproof and solar-powered robot, developed by Franklin Robotics to to take care of the weeding. It is designed to live in your garden and take care of the weeding, come rain or shine. Equipped with a variety of sensors, Tertill roams your garden looking for plants that are less than an inch tall. It trims the weeds using a spinning string simmer, similar to a weed whacker.
Because Tertill’s approach is height-based, put one of the provided plant collars around short plants until they are tall enough for Tertill to recognize. When Tertill approaches the collar, it will recognize it and turn away.
The robot has 4-wheel drive to help it navigate soft soil, sand and mulch. Sensors help it stay within garden fences, avoid rocks and prevent it from falling down steep slopes.
