Due to the increasing labor costs in Europe, Robocrop aims to outpace manual labor in fruit picking of over 25,000 raspberries in a day.
With a staggering cost of £700,000 to develop, Robocrop can seize, grip, and collect fruits in a minute. Moreover, it has sensors, 3D cameras, and machine learning algorithm that allows the robots to pick four fruits at a time in less than 10 seconds.
Furthermore, these robots can work up to 20 hours a day, therefore, addressing the decline in seasonal workers and manual labor.
