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.
