@ElectricJosh Thanks for the encouragement! We're developing a computer vision system based on Nvidia Jetson TX2 at the moment to enable the plants themselves to be used as navigational aid.

@TegwynTwmffat No worries, I am planning to post a similar project about autonomous robots and computer vision so it was great to learn about your development story! That Nvidia board looks plenty capable, I would love to see how far you get with the computer vision and integrated AI differentiating different types of plants. Awesome!
