METOMOTION - Robotic System for Vegetable GreenhousesLearn More

Product & Advantages

METOMOTION is developing a multipurpose robotic system for
labor-intensive tasks in greenhouses. 

METOMOTION’s first application:
Robotic harvester for greenhouse tomatoes. The system is designed for simple operation and smooth integration into existing greenhouse practices. The robotic harvester will bring significant reduction in the number of workers needed for the vegetable production cycle. 

METOMOTION estimates a reduction of up to 50% in harvest-related
labor costs, with a predicted ROI of under three years for the grower.

METOMOTION’s system can be easily adapted to perform a range of
greenhouse tasks, including harvesting of additional vegetables, pruning, monitoring, pollination, and more.

Technology

METOMOTION’s robotic harvester incorporates state of art robotics and automation technology:

  • Advanced 3D vision system and machine vision algorithms to identify and locate the ripe fruits.
  • Multiple, custom designed, robotic arms.
  • Proprietary harvesting end-effector for robust and damage free harvesting.
  • Automated guided vehicle designed for smooth integration with existing infrastructure.
  • Onboard sorting and boxing system.
  • ROS based architecture.
