While native aquatic plants are essential components of aquatic ecosystems, non-native invasive species can expand rapidly throughout water bodies and have severe economic and ecological impacts. Mechanical, chemical, and biological methods exist for the identification and treatment of these invasive species, but these are manually intensive, inefficient, costly, and can cause collateral ecological damage. To overcome current deficiencies and provide timely weed management, this study aims to develop and demonstrate a small fleet of fully autonomous boats capable of scanning subsurface aquatic vegetation, identifying the weeds using machine learning, and deploying herbicide for vegetation control.
