Fruit Harvesting May Get a Tech Update Thanks to This Robot
Below is more information about the revolutionary fruit harvesting technology that can streamline the picking process, allow farmers to overcome existing challenges and help solve ongoing labor shortages in the sector.
The Next Generation of Agricultural Robots
We are moving to a world where robots need to make intelligent decisions about what to do based on what they see. Hence the need for machine learning, vision and AI.
This Rocks: Terraclear's Rock-picking Robot Increases Productivity for Farmers
By using a computer vision-controlled system to map terrain and identify the size and location of rocks embedded in the soil, the heavy lifting is done by automated machinery which saves farmers a lot of time and money.
From Picking Tomatoes to Vaccinating Fish, Agricultural Robots Show Future of Farming
The future of farming was on display at the recent "First China Agricultural Robot Innovation Competition" as teams from universities, scientific research institutes and technology companies showcased their innovations.
Agbots in Farming
The use of agbots is increasing to help with the shortage of human farm labor. Robots are being used to pick fruit, milk cows, and other jobs that formerly required human labor. These agbots have specialized arms that can perform a variety of farm duties.

Robotics startup with deep roots in plant science aims to feed the world through intelligent farming
Introducing the lettuce peeling robot
Cambridge researchers have developed what is believed to be the first robotic lettuce leaf peeling system of its kind.
Pepper-picking robot demonstrates its skills in greenhouse labour automation
With the rising shortage of skilled workforce in agriculture, there's a growing need for robotisation to perform labour-intensive and repetitive tasks in greenhouses. Enter SWEEPER.
Robots Are Trying To Pick Strawberries. So Far, They're Not Very Good At It
Dan Charles for NPR: Any 4-year old can pick a strawberry, but machines, for all their artificial intelligence, can't seem to figure it out. Pitzer says the hardest thing for them is just finding the fruit. The berries hide behind leaves in unpredictable places.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors
The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
