A strawberry harvest-aiding system with crop-transport co-robots: Design, development, and field evaluation [article]

Chen Peng, Stavros Vougioukas, David Slaughter, Zhenghao Fei, Rajkishan Arikapudi
2021 arXiv   pre-print
This work presents the development of a co-robotic harvest-aid system and its evaluation during commercial strawberry harvesting.  ...  A step toward increasing harvest automation for such crops is to deploy harvest-aid collaborative robots (co-bots) that transport the empty and full trays, thus increasing harvest efficiency by reducing  ...  State diagram of picker states and transport robot states during human-robot collaborative harvesting Table 2 .  ...
