What people are saying about Land Maverick ...
Land Maverick has created an autonomous robot designed to travel around a golf course and test the ground for different nutrient levels. The system takes readings from the ground without collecting any soil samplings, and does not create marks on the grass. The system autonomously sample the entire course and the results are sent directly to course managers to best determine treatment and watering schedules. Emily Yale is the founder of Land Maverick and is currently a graduate student at UConn. Land Maverick has participated in numerous programs at UConn including Accelerate UConn, Innovation Quest, Summer Fellowship and the Wolff New Venture Competition. Jennifer Murphy
