Harvest Prediction: the robot that knows when to harvest strawberries

23 November 2017

Welcome to the future of harvesting!

Aris bv and Octinion are working together with the support of the European Union by an Interreg Project to develop a robot for the harvest prediction of strawberries. The knowledge of both companies will be shared during this project. Aris will focus on the recognition and counting of the strawberry flowers. Octinion is using its expertise in strawberry localization and categorization and the development of autonomous vehicles. The goal of this project is to develop an autonomous robot that can gather and process all relevant information about the growth of the strawberries to predict the harvest. This will help farmers to plan their harvest on objective criteria.
