Solar Aseedbot Autonomous Robot Plant Seeds
At first glance, A’seedbot appears to possibly be a prop straight from a science fiction film, but it’s actually a small, solar-powered autonomous robot engineered to inhabit the desert to cultivate its landscape. Created by product designer Mayzar Etehadi, it measures roughly 8-inches long and designed to recharge during the day and work at night. Read more for a short video, additional pictures and information.



The robot is capable of working autonomously within a set 3-mile radius, using its 3D-printed legs to traverse through sand in search of the right levels of moisture, which is detected through one of its eyes. Once the prime area is found, it plants a seed, complete with built-in collision avoidance. This means the only task left for humans is to refill it with seeds.

Desertification is a massive problem across the globe caused by unsustainable agricultural practices, mining, climate change and general land overuse. But much like climate change itself, desertification is a complex ecological issue that is difficult to understand. I just wish that there were more plants, more greenery out there,” said Maz Etehadi.
