A Partnership to Solve Challenges in the Agri-Food Industry

How INO and Vineland Research and Innovation Center tackled human labour challenges with an autonomous cucumber harvesting robot.

The agricultural industry is facing challenges as a lack of human labor resources makes it difficult to harvest vegetables – and cucumber greenhouses are no exception. 

In order to develop a solution to harvest cucumbers as efficiently as a human, Vineland Research and Innovation Center recognized that an off-the-shelf vision system would not respond to the environmental challenges in a cucumber greenhouse. 

Together, INO and Vineland Research and Innovation Center worked on the development of the customized vision aspect of the harvesting system.
