You turn on the TV to watch a sports event and you see a pristine pitch without thinking twice. But behind the scenes, there is a sophisticated system of turf science focused on mowing, fertilization, irrigation, seeding, and aeration. It costs in excess of $1M per year to maintain the average golf course. E-Nano is building a future where robots are used to monitor and control the process of maintaining sports fields and stadium pitches to bring these costs down and reduce the environmental impact of turf management. The company’s robotic solution integrates sensors, 5G, and AI to provide sophisticated analytics to optimize field maintenance. London TechWatch caught up with CEO Christian von Scheidt to learn more about how robots-as-a-service will modernize turf management, the company’s future plans, and initial fundraising efforts.
It spanned over 120 feet and took up a considerable area inside the already overpacked robotics section of the Las Vegas Convention Center, leaving many to wonder, ‘What on earth is a tractor doing at CES?’ Ever the since the acquisition of the artificial intelligence startup Blue River Technologies for $305 million, John Deere has been betting its […]
