Two UVIC Electrical Engineering Students Invent a Very Cool Looking Tree Planting Robot - Dubbed "TreeRover'Friday, August 28, 2015
Vancouver, BC, August 28, 2015--(T-Net)--Two enterprising young electrical engineering students at UVIC, Nick Birch and Tyler Rhodes, who have a shared passion for the environment and sustainable technologies have invented a very cool looking tree-planting robot now called "TreeRover" and together formed a new company called Iota Enterprises.
TreeRover is a tree planting robot designed and built in Victoria, BC with one goal: to plant trees for you!
Tyler is an electronics engineering technologist, currently pursuing his electrical engineering degree at the University of Victoria. He has worked as a service technician for Forest Technology Systems, and for the Canadian Coast Guard. Tyler has completed many electronics design projects including a remote-controlled moving target and a micro camper solar PV system. Visit Tyler's LinkedIn page here.
In 2014 Nick received a Diploma in Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology from Camosun College. He is currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering (electrical) program at the University of Victoria. During his second co-op work term with the Canadian Coast Guard, he developed a piece of hardware to improve the functionality of the Radio Direction Finders used in marine navigation.

Here is a quick edit of TreeRover Ichi doing its thing. In this video you will get an onboard view of the autonomous planting routine.
Best of all, the two students are planning to launch an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign currently scheduled for next month (September 2015)
No word on where the inspiration came from (former tree planters in summer?), but this is one of the coolest home grown and completely "BC relevant" startup ideas and prototypes we've seen in a while.
It will be interesting to see how it all works out over time.
See more details on these dude's new website.
And here is definitely what a startup garage, basement or workspace looks like - and probably pure startup bliss as well for the principles - creating something that didn't exist before, and making things happen.
Editor's Note: Nice job on this so far guys. Keep up the good work.
