Robotic harvesting of broccoli could be coming to a field near you
10 June 2015, 1:32 pm

A project involving 3D camera technology currently being developed could result in a fully automatic robotic harvesting system for broccoli. The project will test whether 3D camera technology can be used to identify and select when broccoli is ready for harvesting. This will be a key step towards the development of a fully automatic robotic harvesting system for broccoli, which will significantly reduce production costs.
