Fruit-tree-harvesting robots have been studied in different countries around the world. Even though robots are developed for the same fruit, their components vary substantially according to the plant-training systems, cultivation methods, climate conditions, labor conditions, and different situations of each country. The differences among robot functions or mechanisms and important observations on open-field robots are discussed.
