FarmBot v1.1 open­ source farming machine and software

by , under Uncategorized

FarmBot is an open­ source and scalable automated precision farming machine and software package designed from the ground up with today’s
technologies. Similar to today’s 3D printers and CNC milling machines, FarmBot hardware employs linear guides in the X, Y, and Z directions that
allow for tooling such as plows, seed injectors, watering nozzles, and sensors, to be precisely positioned and used on the plants and soil.

Using the open­ source web-­based software package, the user can graphically design their farm to their desired specifications and upload numerical control code to the hardware.

The vision of this project is to create an open and accessible technology aiding everyone to grow food and to grow food for everyone.
