When the world learned humans could one day be replaced by robots, a lot of doom scenarios were created. While some of those fears may be justified, one cannot deny robots are far more efficient than human workers could ever be. In the world of raspberry picking, one robot is making a lot of headlines as of late.
As far as most people can remember, fruit picking has always been done by humans. While the involvement of machinery is not all that strange in this day and age, the actual picking requires a gentle touch. Raspberries are, just like other types of fruit, very fragile. As such, one wouldn’t necessarily expect a robot with metallic pincers to be able to perform this job quite admirably. Nothing could be further from the truth in this regard.
