Greenhouse Robotic Worker - The first high-performance robotic system for automated harvesting of vegetables in greenhouses

Project description

Growing robots to pick tomatoes

To meet increasing demand for quality produce year-round, greenhouses are used to grow vegetables. However, the vegetable greenhouse production sector is highly labour intensive. The EU-funded GRoW project may have the solution. It is robotics. Greenhouse robotic workers can halve the costs and reduce the amount of labour required by an astounding 80 %. The core innovations include an advanced 3D vision system to clearly identify ripe fruits among leaves and stems, touch-sensitive terminals to avoid damage and loss of fruits, and extensible multiple robotic arms to increase harvest speed.
