RobotPicks is developing a state-of-the-art autonomous harvester designed to ensure optimal picking of high quality crops, starting with cannabis flowers and aiming to expand to general crops in the future. Using an advanced image analysis and learning system, the robot will detect and pick the flowers, clean away the leaves, and gently place the flowers in a container.
The companys innovative system will be mounted on an autonomous vehicle that will move across the greenhouse to harvest the flowers automatically, efficiently, and accurately. The robotic system will add value and economic growth to the grower, reducing harvest costs and improving picking quality and accuracy compared to the manual picking practices currently in use. RobotPicks will develop and finalize its first generation of autonomous robotic harvesters at the CanNegev incubator. In the next phase, the company will build the integration and production facility in Yeruham near the CanNegev incubator for manufacturing robotic harvesting systems and conducting worldwide marketing and sales activities.
