I’m a commercial lemon and avocado grower in Southern California excited to learn about Acorn!
We have a very static environment that seems like a good fit for an autonomous robot. It’s even terrain and trees that stay in the same place for decades at a time. They’re also pretty impossible to mix up with weeds. But it’s a lot of distance and seems well suited to a design like Acorn. I was recently in a block of trees that’s got very straight rows of trees each 20 feet wide by 1000 feet long. An Acorn could spend a day tending to one of these rows freeing our guys up to work on other tasks.
Has anyone worked on something for an orchard setting like this specific to weeding? A lot of our other tasks are a bit complicated and physically challenging.
