Our Story

Three key outcomes...

Three key outcomes emerged
from this capability building period:

  • A kiwifruit harvester independently assessed as world-leading harvest technology
  • A quadbike-based kiwifruit pollination system called QuadDuster™ that demonstrated the benefits of even assistive technologies, but more importantly it validated the vision of a ‘service model’ approach to technology deployment.
  •  Alistair’s completed PhD in Industrial Automation, helped solidify the technological basis of RPL’s approach.
