  Orchard Spraying
Back | Next


NREC converted a John Deere tractor into an autonomous vehicle for spraying water in orchards.

NREC developed a vehicle retrofit kit that allowed the tractor to operate without a human driver.  Its software accurately estimated the vehicle’s position and enabled it to autonomously follow previously-driven paths.

The autonomous tractor sprayed water while following a seven kilometer long path through an orange orchard without any human intervention.
