Basic operation of tomato harvesting system using robot - manufacture of two-finger harvesting hand with auxiliary cutting device and basic experiment for harvest


Bulletin of the National Research Institute of Vegetables, Ornamental Plants and Tea Series A: Vegetables and Ornamental Plants ( 12): 133-142
Basic operation of tomato harvesting system using robot - manufacture of two-finger harvesting hand with auxiliary cutting device and basic experiment for harvest
Tomato fruit size, location and degree of maturity are so variable that intelligent decision making and end-effectors are required to replace manual labour. In response to the increasing demand for mechanization in tomato production, a Tomato Harvesting System, composed of a machine vision system, control unit, manipulator, 2-fingered robotic hand with suction pad and cutting device and a travelling device, was developed and tested.
