ETV is proud to announce the AGRowBot, our first Precision Agriculture robot. It is designed to be a low cost and efficient tool to help small farms make the most out of their crops.

What does it do?

  • Traverses rows autonomously and intelligently to avoid damaging the crop
  • Collects environmental data from around the field including: temperature, humidity, and soil moisture
  • Uses computer vision and TensorFlow to identify the plants
  • Geo-tags the location of each plant Creates a growth profile of the field with an entry for each plant
  • Identifies and locates foreign or invading plants for removal
  • Creates a report for the farmer with the overall field conditions
  • Can work with other AGRowBot's to complete tasks quickly


I'm Amanda, the communications liason for the AGRowBot Kickstarter campaign, and I wanted to say a huge thank you for being one of our early backers! We're excited to see the support for our first Kickstarter campaign for the AGRowBot. Kickstarter projects are all-or-nothing funding, so if we do not reach our goal we will receive none of the funding. AGRowBot is important to us as a way to support the small farming community struggling with labor, pests, weather, and economic challenges. You've backed our project, now I'm asking you to share our project with your friends and family to help us spread the word about the future of farming and precision agriculture.

As you've probably heard, San Diego Comic-Con is coming at the end of this week. I'll be attending as a volunteer, and what better way to spread the word about precision agriculture and robotics than at the biggest pop-culture celebration in the world! I've designed special promotional business cards to hand out at SDCC to spread the word!

If you have any questions about our project, please feel free to send us a message! We're always happy to hear from our supporters.

Thanks again for your support!

Hello Everyone,

I am one of the software engineers at ETV, and I am pleased to announce that the Kickstarter Campaign for the AGRowBot is now LIVE! This funding will help us finish development of our favorite little precision agriculture robot, and add the really cool features that set it apart from the crowd. Such as, stereo vision and pathfinding for truly autonomous intelligent navigation, automatic plant identification which uses machine learning, and improved communications which create a mesh network for long range collaboration.

Your help would be most appreciated, not only in the form of backing the project, but moral support and suggestions. Any ideas or criticism you have, don't be afraid to tell us. We will soon have a precision agriculture forum set up, until then please email us at, or me personally at

Thank you all for your support, see you at Kickstarter!
