Hortikey Plantalyzer – tomato monitoring robot for harvesting forecast


Agri Robotics – The Plantalyzer is a unique combination of autonomous robot, vision which counts and classifies tomatoes on the plant, and intelligent forecasting software. The result is reliable information for the most accurate crop estimate. The grower receives objective information about e.g. the quantity and ripeness status of fruit. It is developed in close collaboration with Wageningen University & Research and is powered by Berg Hortimotive and Royal Brinkman.
