Grover and Ada: water-saving robots that grow hydroponic produce

Developed by a Silicon Valley startup called Iron Ox, these farming robots are integrated with a hydroponic system that allows plants to grow in a water-based solution.

The robots are called Grover and Ada, and they are making the most of water and electricity. In essence, these robots are growing more crops with less waste, with each of them collaborating to complete a full evaluation process.

The robots are integrated with a hydroponic system. The facility currently grows basil and strawberries, but there will be more types of crops to produce when large-scale farms are finally in the works.

Wondering what kind of engineering and technology goes into producing such robots? Curious about what the robots look like in action? In this video, you can see the robots in action.
