Start-up develops robot doctor and dreams of harvesting robot

"If a disease breaks out somewhere in a greenhouse and you react quickly, you can still save a large part of the harvest." Growers know this, but so do Soheil Jananshahi and Koel Bol of Mythtronics. They are developing a small modular robot that can perform various tasks for growers with different software packages, including disease detection. One robot covers about one hectare.

The robot developers told the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad more about their innovation and plans. For now, the focus of Mythronics is just on tomatoes and strawberries. They are working hard to have as wide a range as possible. But perhaps the hardest work is creating a robot that, in addition to monitoring and predicting, can also harvest. "That would be the holy grail in our field," he says.
