Five perspectives were proposed covering the robotic arms, end effectors, vision systems, picking environments, and picking performance for the large-scale mechanized production of fruits and vegetables  ...  However, some improvements still need to be performed on these picking robots. To document the progress in and current status of this field, this study performed a bibliometric analysis.  ...  A case study was also conducted on a dual-arm robot to imitate the human behavior of picking [26] , indicating much more feasibility. Another cherry-harvesting robot developed by Tanigaki et al.  ...

Gone To The Dogs: Inter-Species Bonds And The Building Of Bio-Cultural Capital In America, 1835--Present

Merit Anglin
Meditation upon the nature of the animal and the essence of the human has driven many a "seeker," real and imagined, "to a state of holy insanity."  ...  It is within these key moments, when inter-species intimacy stops to assist and begins to impede human survival, that humanity signifies animality, that the human can be decentered and the human-animal  ...  His developmental approach to human self-knowledge considers Homo sapiens cognitively capable but decidedly unwilling to acknowledge the underlying mechanisms at work in our species' survival.  ...
