Vegebot’ Will Now Help in Harvesting Your Lettuce

The scientists of Cambridge have developed a vegetable-picking robot that uses machine learning to identify and harvest a commonplace but challenging agricultural crop. It uses machine learning for its work. Machine Learning is an application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) which provides systems the capacity to learn automatically and improve from experience without being programmed explicitly. Harvesting and picking are one of the most popular robotic applications in agriculture due to the accuracy and speed that robots can achieve to improve the size of yields and reduce waste from crops being left in the field. The research found that if the robotics in agriculture expanded, it will give on improving overall production yields, even for crops like iceberg lettuce which are particularly challenging to harvest mechanically.
