VitiBot is a French industrial start-up. It improves practices in the vineyards by offering robotic solutions that are part of sustainable development.
Bakus is our autonomous straddle tractor for wine-making work. It helps winegrowers to deal with economic, environmental and social issues that are difficult to reconcile.
With Bakus, we protect the health of winegrowers by keeping them away from chemicals and we guarantee the safety of operators, even in sloping vineyards.
Our robots allow you to delegate the daunting work to focus on key tasks. This way, we can take advantage of nights and weekends to gain flexibility. It is possible to better adapt to plant needs or weather conditions.
Bakus halves the operating costs in the vineyards. A stand-alone machine covers a larger area by working without interruption and reduces the equipment stock.
Double containment spraying is the most effective solution for using the optimal dose of plant protection products, which makes it possible to halve their consumption. (Marketing of the tool in 2020)
We can recover the kinetic energy when the machine descends a vine and reuse it to go up. Our vehicles are covered with photovoltaic panels to contribute to their power supply.
The control of herbicides generates much more soil maintenance work, Bakus offers an economical and efficient solution to meet this new constraint.
