A Picking Robot for a Greenhouse

A picking robot from ETH spin-off Floating Robotics automates important tasks such as defoliation, harvesting, and packaging of vegetables. Although the robot is still in the pilot phase, the team expects it to play an integral role in Beerstecher AG in Hinwil’s production process. Watch this video to learn more.

“The robot primarily takes over strenuous and repetitive activities, allowing our employees to focus on more demanding tasks that require a creative and critical mindset," explains Bianca Curcio , who is responsible for production management in the Beerstecher greenhouse and is an ETH Zurich alumna.
