This robot has been designed for the automatic picking and packing of tomatoes. To be able to do this, it is fitted with a sensor to detect the ripeness of the tomatoes, so that only ripe ones are picked. The robot is to be implemented using the robolink® modular component setfrom igus®. The plastic joints can rotate and pivot freely and pneumatic, hydraulic and data lines and cables can be routed safely in the jointed arms.
