Fresh Fruit Robotics
Product design: it is not autonomous. One supervisor drives the machine. The machine is designed to have 12 picking arms, 6 on each side. The picking arm can penetrate one meter into the tree and if the trees are 100 or 600mm inside and are visible the robot can pick them up.

Agricultural robotics and drones: diversity of functions, forms
Our research, published in Agricultural Robots and Drones 2018-2038: Technologies, Markets and Players, describes how robotics is transforming the world of agriculture. Indeed, our previous articles have described agricultural robotics and drones could become a $28Bn and $35B industry by 2028 and 2038, respectively. In this article, we seek to demonstrate the diversity of functions, forms and fortunes that exists, and will continue to exist, in agricultural robotics.
