On Saturday 24 September a new all-Belgian innovation will be presented in Hoogstraten. Octinion will present its prototype of a strawberry picking robot. After a development of two years, the robot is able to pick strawberries in the same way as a human: without bruising the strawberries and without the stem attached to the strawberry.
