Robotic tomato harvester

AI for affordable tomato harvesting

Tomato harvesting is a labor-intensive, costly, and delicate process. With labor becoming increasingly scarce, the need for automation and efficiency in this sector has never been greater. At Robovision, we’ve developed an AI software solution that addresses these challenges head-on. Our software empowers ISO Horti Innovators’ Harvesting Robot to deliver unparalleled precision, efficiency, and quality in tomato harvesting.

Key benefits of Vision AI for Tomato harvesting

  • Data-Driven Insights: Our software provides growers with valuable data on their harvesting process. By monitoring cluster ripeness and readiness, growers can make informed decisions and respond proactively to market fluctuations.
  • Reduced Disease Spread: Our contactless harvesting approach, coupled with the robot’s integrated disinfection function, minimizes the risk of disease transmission and promotes plant health.
  • Human Intelligence, Robotic Consistency: While the deep learning algorithms are continuously getting smarter thanks to human insights, the machines never tire or get distracted. This guarantees an unparalleled quality.
  • Accurate Tomato Assessment and Selection for Harvest Readiness: Our deep learning algorithms enable the robot to recognize and select ripe tomatoes with human-like precision. The software continually learns and adapts, ensuring optimal selection over time.
  • Optimized Cutting Techniques: Working seamlessly with the robot’s hardware, our software ensures that tomato clusters are cut at the ideal angle, preserving fruit quality and minimizing waste.
  • Increased Harvesting Speed and Capacity: By swiftly and accurately identifying ripe tomatoes, our software significantly boosts harvesting speed, leading to higher overall capacity and operational efficiency.
  • The ISO Harvesting Robot autonomously picks tomatoes using AI and cutting-edge technology. One operator can manage up to five machines. It detects ripe clusters, cuts at optimal angles, and places them in crates for easy removal.
  • Speedy harvesting, short payback period
    The ISO Harvesting Robot stands out for its harvesting speed. Short cycle times result in a high capacity per hour. Combined with the accuracy and precision with which the ISO Harvesting Robot operates, this contributes to the short payback period of three to four years.
  • Growing more successful over time
    Thanks to the Vision AI software and patented technology the ISO Harvesting Robot has a very high success rate.This allows the machine to better recognize the shape and ripeness of the tomatoes and adjust its movements accordingly. Through deep learning, the success rate will continue to increase.
  • Smarter data for a better harvest
    Which clusters can be harvested? And when? With the ISO Harvesting Robot, you can manage based on data. The machine provides you with valuable insights to cultivate more actively and respond better to the demand for tomatoes, ultimately resulting in more efficient harvesting.
  • Reduction of disease spread
    The ISO Harvesting Robot allows you to work hygienically and significantly reduce the spread of diseases. Since the machine does the work, far fewer people come into contact with the plants, automatically lowering the risk of transmission. Additionally, the Harvesting Robot features can disinfect the cutting mechanism. This results in higher production and yield.
