How we do it
The hand carefully pushes away obstacles and adjacent strawberries, encloses the target strawberry without touching the berry, cuts the stem and sends the berry straight into a punnet. This is a highly effective picking method.
Strawberries ripe unevenly giving large variation in colour and size. We use machine vision and Artificial Intelligence (AI) for recognition and categorizing of berries. Strawberries tend to grow in clusters and our solution is handling the challenges of identifying and pick individual berries.
Our dome-construction secures light control at all times of the day and night, and enables the picker to operate 24/7 when needed. The dome and picking arm are mounted on top of the Thorvald platform developed by our partner Saga Robotics.
high tech solution
Advanced perception and AI (artificial Intelligence) algorithms are used. The system can categorize and sort the berries, and a closed loop system ensures high accuracy when picking strawberries in clusters.
