FaaS

  • 212

Imagine a world where you can use lightweight, smart machines instead of tractors.

The Small Robot Company is a company that uses three small robots, Tom, Dick and Harry, and their artificial intelligence brain Wilma, to plant, monitor and manage crops on their own. This allows farmers to be more efficient, more precise, more productive and kinder to the soil and the environment. Unfortunately, not yet in Hungary.

What is Farming as a Service?

They offer their robots through the Farming as a Service (FaaS) model. So the user can take advantage of robotic farming without risk.

What exactly is farming as a service?

Farming as a service connects a series of robots to a smart “operating system”. It starts by gathering accurate and up-to-date information about plants, plant by plant. We call this “digitising the field”. This information is then automatically analysed using data and advice from the world’s leading agronomists and the UK Government’s Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB). This is used to give guidance on what should happen to each crop and each patch of soil that other robots might be managing. Eventually, every process will be automated – from planting time, through every aspect of crop care, to harvest time.

How do robots fit in?

Agricultural robots (Tom) will be placed on your farm to autonomously monitor crops and soil, and keep an eye on weeds. Our other agricultural robots (Dick, Harry) take care of feeding, sowing and weeding. When these robots are needed, they show up and do their job. When it’s done, it takes the task away.

Why is this good for the farmer?

Simply put, AI-driven agricultural robots take care of your crops with a level of detail never before possible. It will be done autonomously, and with little or no human effort. Crops will be healthier, soil will be in better condition, and yields will be higher.

Fuel and chemical inputs will be a fraction of what they were. No longer will you have to do basic farm work, instead you can focus on getting the most out of your crops and your farm.

How will you pay for it?

You’ll pay a per-hectare subscription fee for a robotic hardware service that digitizes your farm and provides crop care. You don’t pay for a machine. You pay for healthy crops. By focusing our business on a service rather than a product, and by structuring our prices per hectare, there is a low risk of you trying or adopting. How do I know that newer equipment won’t become obsolete? You don’t have to own the hardware, nor do you have to worry about the hardware becoming obsolete or obsolete. You won’t have huge capital losses if things go wrong. There is no risk. Instead, you can control and regulate your spending in ways more closely related to the size of your economy.
