About us

Gbot was established as a project of Mapplics Mobile Solutions, a company from Rosario that has been providing innovative digital solutions since 2008. In 2018, PhD Javier Eduardo Epeloa, who is a specialist in the development of electronic instruments oriented to fields such as precision agriculture, meteorology and renewable energy, became a partner.

With the mission of creating Mapplics Innovation Area, we started to work on IoT projects. Our first project was the development of meteorological stations that monitor humidity and the temperature of the environment. These stations are integrated to a system capable of using the information collected in order to predict frosts. The prediction is based on an algorithm created by our technical staff. This technology has been applied to intensive agriculture, more specifically to blueberry production.

After our first project, we started to work in a new challenge: weed control by means of an alternative method with no agrochemicals in broadacre agriculture. We did this by relying on promising technologies such as AI and Robotics.

Nowadays, we are working on breeding. For us, this is the best introduction of Robotics to agriculture. Breeders are extremely accustomed to the needs and management of large volumes of information and their activities are carried out in environments where Robotics are likely to stride.

In 2019, we were granted a CITES fund so as to introduce Robotics to the field of agriculture.
