#Changemaker: This robot will happily carry your fruit harvest
Fruit and vegetable pickers spend 30% of their time hauling the harvest back to base. And that’s only a conservative estimate, Sandro Rabbiosi tells us.
The entrepreneur behind Ant Robotics GmbH introduced us to Valera, an autonomous transportation robot.
The intelligent system analyzes data on the field in real-time and rushes to help pickers unload their crates. Valera adapts to open fields and crop rows, carrying up to 600kg.
Solar-powered and self-sufficient, the robot can shuttle around the plantation for the entire harvest season.
