Thesis Topic/Title:
End effector design for fruit picking


With increasing demand and decreasing availability of seasonal farm labour use of robotic fruit harvesting is increasing throughout the world. Fruits and agricultural produce in general are very sensitive and susceptible for bruising while handling as well as harvesting and cause damage with automatic or robotic harvesting and handling methods. Very small research on robotic end effectors has been done for handling agricultural produce. This project aims for designing and evaluating the end effector for fruit handling.
