Raspberry picking robot

The Guardian has an interesting article on a robot designed to pick raspberries – and potentially also other crops as well. This robot is able to about 25,000 berries a day, whereas a human picker can only do 15,000. It took about 700,000 Pound to develop this machine and it is expected it will come into production next year.

Farm automation is a rapidly developing field and one that is of great importance for future space settlements as we discussed earlier on this site.
