The group will be represented by Prof. Bruce MacDonald and Dr Pau Medrano-Gràcia from The University of Auckland and Prof. Mike Duke from the University of Waikato. The seminar will summarize their research partnership to create robotics technology for kiwifruit and apple orchards, with the Universities of Auckland and Waikato, New Zealand’s Plant and Food Research Institute, and New Zealand company Robotics Plus. This includes an autonomous mobile robot, a targeted pollination system for kiwifruit flowers, a four-arm harvester for kiwifruit, and a prototype apple harvester.
