Fruits of robotics
When Steve Saunders and Dr Alistair Scarfe founded New Zealand-based tech company, Robotics Plus, their vision was to develop technology that would free agricultural workers from menial and repetitive tasks. Throughout this journey, Yamaha Motor Company has been helping them achieve their goals. Taking advantage of Yamaha’s extensive knowledge in machine vision and artificial intelligence, Robotics Plus has developed a range of post-harvest robotics and autonomous vehicles for fruit packing, orchard harvesting and pollination. The partnership between Yamaha and Robotics Plus has provided a valuable opportunity for both companies to invest in the growing area of agricultural robotic solutions as well as encourage future growth by investing in new technologies.
