Strawberry picking robot


Strawberry picking robot via CrunchGear.

The Fourth Robot Awards ceremony took place at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. In the Service Robot category, an Excellence Award went to a strawberry picking robot that can tell which strawberries are ready for harvesting. This robot uses cameras to detect the color and ripeness of strawberries, and harvests them by snipping the stalks, so it doesn’t damage the fruits. It can harvest over 60% of a strawberry crop, taking nine seconds to pick each strawberry.
