Peachy Robot: A Glimpse into the Peach Orchard of the Future

Thinning and pruning peach trees is a time- and labor-intensive process. Engineers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute have built a robot designed to intelligently remove branches and small, undergrown peaches to promote a healthy and fruitful orchard, which could result in significant cost savings for Georgia peach farms.

The robot uses a 3D camera to determine peaches that need to be removed and a claw-like device to grab each peach.

Serving Georgia's Underserved Communities

Four new, federally funded awards totaling $5.5 million will allow Georgia Tech researchers to extend their positive impact in Georgia's underserved communities. The grants, awarded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Environmental Protection Agency, and the Department of Energy, will bring Georgia Tech researchers to various parts of the state. Transit and transportation access will be the focus in metro Atlanta. Those studying fire emissions and their impact on health will visit K-12 schools in southwestern and western Georgia.

Summer Program Empowers Clarkston Youth to Create Change

Six teens from Clarkston, Georgia spent four weeks of their summer in the Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) institute, a Georgia Tech program created to help young people learn how to conduct research and develop solutions for their community. Assistant Professor Allen Hyde in the School of History and Sociology spent three weeks training the Clarkston students in research methods. With support from Serve-Learn-Sustain initiative director Jennifer Hirsch, summer intern Hudson McGaughey, and Associate Professor AJ Kim at San Diego State University, the students collected and analyzed data to discover how to make it easier and safer for young people to get to after-school sports, activities, and jobs in Clarkston.
