Would you like to make a difference to our planet, environment & biodiversity, while working with deeptech & sensor based technology?
Then this opportunity might be interesting to you.
We are a deep tech start-up, named PerPlant, which is on a mission to help farmers transition into sustainable agriculture by use of AI & sensor technology.
We are building a start-up that uses camera sensors, computer vision, and AI on the edge to help farmers monitor their fields, including pest pressure and biomass levels. This allows farmers to gain insight on where to spray and how much spraying of chemicals (pesticide and fertilizers) is precisely needed, which reduces their cost for chemicals and the negative impact that chemicals have on the environment, human health, biodiversity, and climate.
