Designing the interface for next generation, intelligent precision weeding & cultivation equipment.

FarmWise is an intelligent agricultural equipment business focused on building affordable and reliable vision systems that power tomorrow's farm equipment with ultra precision. With a history of delivering in-field automonous and data-driven equipment, FarmWise has released their next-generation automated weeding machine called Vulcan.

Vulcan is a weeding implement that packs cutting-edge computer vision into a lightweight, open cultivator frame. It's powered by the Intelligent Plant Scanner, a high-performance, tightly integrated combination of camera, lighting, and computation elements that can identify, learn, scan and operate precise actuation control hardware & software for reliable and consistent sub-inch weeding accuracy.

ZeroSixty were asked to design the end-to-end HMI for the entire Vulcan platform - to enable operators of the Vulcan a powerful, intuitive and multi-featured control system to manage the operation of the equipment.

Our work took us through deep analysis of user needs and primary use cases, through to prototyping & testing intricate control scenarios to ensure ease of use, flexiblity and agility in controls, and an operational simplicity. This simplicity is what truly drove our refinements and iterations - a proof of validation and readiness that revolved around the control of the physical equipment, context and continual control interaction and optimisation.

The process further illuminated the unique nature and where new and emerging behavior existed. Which took us to remote fields with prototypes and conversations with farmers. The end result is a succcessful companion to the physical equipment, and a valuable control platform that focuses on impact.

An intuitive task-driven approach.

A design system that is tightly defined, highly documented and resolved as a shared library of components, target touch areas and a consistent interaction language - all done to drive ease of use, task completion, and real-time feedback.
