Image credit : Designboom Agrist, a Japanese robotics company, has addressed the shortage of farm workers in Japan by introducing a pepper-picking robot named L. This innovative robot, recognized with an Innovation Award at CES, operates on thick overhead wires, resembling a horizontal gondola, rather than using wheels or legs. Equipped with multiple cameras and an AI-based computer vision algorithm, L navigates between rows of bell pepper plants, identifying ripe peppers hidden among the foliage.

To prevent overfilling, the robot periodically pauses above a separate basket and opens the compartment's bottom, allowing the collected peppers to drop into the basket for retrieval by human workers.

Its power source consists of two batteries that can be quickly exchanged with fully charged ones when their energy levels decline.
