Reference #: 01582

The University of South Carolina is offering licensing opportunities for Mechanism and Methods for Robotic Installation of Stakes


Currently, as part of the bell pepper planting process, stakes are needed to provide support for the plant as it begins to grow from a two-three-week-old plant to a fully mature plant. This is a tedious and labor-heavy process.

Invention Description:

This invention is an autonomous all-terrain robot designed for architectural industries whose purpose is to install support stakes in the plant beds while being able to self-navigating in an agricultural field.

Potential Applications:

Agricultural companies that specialize in growing bell pepper, eggplants, and any other plants that have a weak stem and need support after a few weeks of growth are the potential clients for this product.

Advantages and Benefits:

The technology will lower the cost of labor involved in the bell pepper planting process. This robot will work 24/7, weather permitting, while providing an efficient and completely hands-free way to install stakes needed in the bell pepper planting process.
