What we do
To face the challenges of feeding a growing population without creating negative impacts on the climate and environment, we are developing automation technology for vertical farming systems.
Due to high labour costs, vertical farming is currently facing problems with being profitable and expanding their product range. With our robotic station we will automate the harvest, plant care and pollination for different varieties of fruit and vegetables to make it possible to grow a wide range of crops profitably. Our technology is specialised on the vertical farming environment and can easily be integrated into existing systems. The image recognition recognises ripe fruit, with the software being programmed to automatically harvest and place the fruit into a container. This makes our product easy to use and does not require prior knowledge for handling. Our modular design makes it possible to add new grippers for different fruit and vegetables. In addition to that, we are developing an optimised process technology, which will enable a faster harvesting speed.
We are currently developing our first prototype which will be presented in December.
