Robots for arduous tasks of nursery gardeners
Instar Robotics presented their robot for nursery gardeners during the FIRA 2019.
Twice a year, each nursery gardener has to deal with the implementation of arduous tasks, with low added value and with a real problem of working force:
- To space pots before summer to foster plant growth and prevent disease transmission;
- To consolidate pots before winter to make sure that they resist cold and wind.
By working side by side with farmers, Instar Robotics has developed Trooper, an autonomous mobile robot for agricultural logistics that meets precise specifications.
Fully integrated into the team, Trooper detects, picks up, charges and reorganizes the pots as it is needed while navigating in autonomy, safely and with great simplicity and adaptability.
