Abstract/Summary

The popularity of the field of robotics has been growing exceptionally throughout the years. Through this technology, different tasks usually done by humans manually can be done more accurately and efficiently. Harvesting under the scorching sun is a very laborious task for humans. Thus, this study aims to provide an efficient alternative by designing an autonomous fruit picker. This said fruit picker for machine vision which is responsible for capturing the image which would be processed to locate the distance of plant and orange from the robotic arm. With the direction provided by the vision, the machine is then maneuvered towards the position of the plant where the fruits are to be picked. To make these movements possible, servo motors controlled by Arduino are used to control the movement of the mobile platform and robotic arm. When the machine is close enough, a robot arm would extract the fruit from the plant.
