Project Overview

ECHORD++ Experiment CATCH

Cucumber Gathering – Green Field Experiments - CATCH

CATCH experiment explores novel, lightweight, modular and cheap, nevertheless robust multi-arm robotic systems, built of standardised components, providing economic basis and use cases for agricultural applications. It aims at developing a flexible, cost-efficient and reconfigurable/scalable hortibotic outdoor solution for automated harvesting in challenging natural conditions by addressing critical problems, such as fruit perception and fast picking actions. The use case of outdoor cucumber harvesting has been selected taking into account the need from relevant end-users, the technological challenges, as well as the economic impact in various European regions.
