FieldBot

CloudFarming’s FieldBot is an innovative robotic transporter that increases the efficiency and safety of horticultural harvest processes for high-value crops, such as asparagus, broccolini, strawberries, and more. The CloudFarming FieldBot is a semi-autonomous, solar / battery powered platform that drives itself down rows of produce as workers harvest produce and place it into crates on the platform. The FieldBot is integrated with an electronic scale and software solution (the FieldApp) so that workers can weigh product as it is picked. The data is streamed directly to a cloud database. Capturing yield data that is worker and location specific means that we can help farmers pay Award-compliant piece rates with ease, precisely monitor crop productivity, and develop accurate yield prediction algorithms. In a recent field trial for asparagus, it improved harvest productivity by 83% and reduced pickers’ hazardous movements by 47%.
