Increased public interest in food safety and clean agriculture (e.g., ecological agriculture, organic culture and agrochemical-free cultivation) is driving a production system change from dependence on and use of agrochemicals toward their elimination. However, this raises a huge time- and labor-consuming problem with weeds. The weeding robot “TAMBA" decreases weeds in paddy fields without resorting to herbicides. "TAMBA" autonomously travels while avoiding rice plant rootstocks. Final goal is to runs on schedule, return to the docking station and recharge like “ROOMBA". In this time, we installed WebIOPi and set up Web Server on the Raspberry Pi in order to control and monitor the robot “TAMBA" in any browser under any operating system. And, we studied navigation system for autonomous proximity operations to the docking station using RSSI of bluetooth.
