Abstract

A mobile quality evaluation robot has been developed to make agricultural products traceable. The operator moves the robot along a crop line to harvest fruit. The quality of the harvested fruit is evaluated from images taken by a machine vision system mounted on the robot. At the same time, individual plants from which the fruit was collected are identified from the plant numbers of IC tags attached to every one. A field map with information about fruit quality and yield is created based on these data.
