Robots handling fresh produce is not always straight forward. This Apple picking robot can handle the task quite well though. It uses a Soft Robotics gripper to handle delicate products without any damage. It uses FANUC’s 3D Area Sensor to locate each individual apple to be picked.
The robot can grab apples in any orientation. The adaptable gripper interacts with each item without damaging surrounding products. It is made of FDA approved materials. You can find more picking and packaging robots from FANUC here.
