Shades of Silent Running! In a time when farmers and landscapers could use some extra help in a struggling economy, Harvest Automation is in the process of beta testing a small mobile robot that, as part of a team, can assist. Each grips a pot, has a deck for carrying, sensors to know where it is and spaces each plant. It can work 24/7 in all weather and when harvest time comes, can retrieve the finished product. The Massachusetts based wheeled farmbot is field testing now and should be available for consumers next year.
