Experiment to carry apples with a robot in Aomori, using the technology of a rover that runs on the moon
In the city of Hirosaki in Aomori, a experiment in which a robot carries apples on a field was being done.
This robot was built by a company located in Miyagi.
It uses technology from a NASA-made vehicle that runs on the moon and explores it. (Lunar rover)
It can even run on fields which have stones and soil and are not flat.
It was carrying a 5kg-heavy basket with apples in it while manoeuvering between the trees to not collide with them.
According to the company, it’s a self-driving robot and it can take the basket to the warehouse by itself.
The company is also thinking about lending those robots to famers, starting in April next year.
A apple farmer said:” I’m concerned because there are never enough workers but having a self-driving basket makes me happy.”
