Innovate Future Farming
with Robots for Plant Factory
HarvestX is an agritech project developing robots to grow and harvest strawberries.
We research and develop robots for plant factories to realize fully automated fruits cultivation to solve the food supply and labor shortage problem in the future. We are now focusing on strawberries and developing robots that support pollination and harvesting that are big burdens for farmers now.
Recognition of Flowers and Fruits
Our robots recognize positions of flowers and fruits with cameras for pollination and picking. They also detect maturity of fruits with machine learning.
Special Attachment for Pollination
Our robots pollinate strawberries with a special brush attachment. This technology is patent pending.
Harvesting Without Damage
Our robots harvest strawberries by picking stems in order not to damage fruits.
We solve food supply problem through fully automated fruits cultivation.
Our mission is enriching people by supplying delicious fruits from metropolises to deserts and space in the future that is expected food shortages and space immigration.
Yuki started to learn computer science and robotics when he was in high school. He developed and released a 3D printed robotic arm as his research in highschool. After entering university, Yuki has experienced various product development as a software and hardware engineer in SONY and some startup companies.
Shoki has experienced robot championships held by NHK(Japanese public broadcasting company) for 8 years in college of technology and university. He became the champion in Japan and participated in world championships. He has also developed robots and participated in many contests and exhibitions. He is now majoring in aerospace engineering in university and joining various robot projects outside of university.
