According to FarmWise, the robots have effectively eliminated weeds from more than 10 million plants.

In June 2019, iRobot Corp., the leader in consumer robots, acquired Root Robotics, the developer of an educational robot called the Root coding robot, for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition of Root Robotics will allow iRobot to broaden the impact of its STEM efforts with a commercially available, educational robotic platform that was already being used by educators, students and parents. The Root coding robot is a two-wheeled, mobile platform and when it is paired with the companion mobile application, users can instruct Root to draw artwork, scan colors, play music, respond to touch and sound, climb whiteboard walls, and explore the fundamentals of robotics.

The increasing penetration of smart robots in industries is predicted to boost the growth of the smart robot market over the coming years.Smart robots are a mix of advanced technology and efficient hardware that uses smart sensor technology (such as ultrasonic, light and touch sensors) to communicate with the physical world surrounding them.
