Asparagus to be harvested by robotic vision system | Farming & Agriculture blog

“Until now, the level of automation in asparagus harvesting has been negligible due to the absence of cost-effective technology. But harvesting the products manually can lead to losses of up to 15 per cent, mainly due to damage caused to asparagus stalks that are inadvertently cut by workers.  To overcome those problems, European engineers are developing a continuous, fully automatic vision-based robotic system to harvest both white and violet asparagus. The system is claimed to be the first that will be able to do so.” (A similar article appears on the Vision Systems Design website.)
