agricultural robot, asparagus, harvest
To replace manual labor, we developed an automated asparagus harvesting robot consisting of a proposed end effector, a robotic arm, a laser range sensor and a mobile cart for navigating asparagus furrows. The major feature of our robot are that it harvests asparagus speedily and works at whatever hours it is needed.
