When a plant is pruned, it is shaped and thinned out while also having deceased, diseased, or damaged branches removed. A three-rotation wrist end-effector that cuts the branches and a three-directional linear manipulator that carries and moves the end-effector to the intended pruning places make up a robotic pruner.
Only one trimming guideline applies to the robot: Remove the laterals to preserve the shape of the system’s eponymous narrow, erect fruiting offshoots. Robotics is still not able to enforce the second guideline, which is to choose fresh shoots for renewal.
GLOBAL ROBOTIC TREE PRUNING SYSTEM MARKET SIZE AND FORECAST
The Global Robotic tree pruning system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The stated project entails the development of a robotic pruning end effector and a machine vision system that can identify the location of the proposed branch-chopping by detecting the tree branches. By taking into account the horticultural and spatial needs of the apple plants, an end-effector will be created.
It will be noted for the end-effector design how much power was necessary to cut the branches. tion for branch accessibility will also be done, and field tests will be run to verify the simulation findings. To reconstruct the canopy’s 3D shape, a vision device will be created.
The machine vision system will be used to identify the pruning location and to identify the pruning parameters by incorporating the widely accepted pruning rules. The development of a robotic system for apple tree pruning using a robotic end-effector and machine vision system is the main objective of this project.
The creation of a powerful autonomous pruning end-effector The manoeuvrability to cut branches in any orientation as well as the minimal amount of space needed to move easily in a constrained workspace will be taken into consideration when developing the end effector.
For the purpose of choosing the end effector components, a field test for measuring pruning power will be carried out. Additionally, the end effector’s design optimization and orientation monitoring will be carried out. The end effector design should be able to create clean branch cuts, take up the least amount of space, and cut branches in any orientation.
