  • Prismatic axis, differential-drive robotic kiwifruit harvester for reduced cycle time

    Barnett, Josh (The University of Waikato, 2018)
    The New Zealand kiwifruit industry is currently worth over NZD 2 billion in annual sales revenue, this is forecast to double within the next 5-10 years due to a significant increase in production volume. The industry is ...
  • Robotic kiwifruit harvesting using machine vision, convolutional neural networks, and robotic arms

    Williams, Henry A.M.; Jones, Mark Hedley; Nejati, Mahla; Seabright, Matthew; Bell, Jamie; Penhall, Nicky D.; Barnett, Josh; Duke, Mike; Scarfe, Alastair J.; Ahn, Ho Seok; Lim, JongYoon; MacDonald, Bruce A. (Elsevier, 2019)
    As labour requirements in horticultural become more challenging, automated solutions are becoming an effective approach to maintain productivity and quality. This paper presents the design and performance evaluation of a ...
  • Robotic Pollination - Targeting kiwifruit flowers for commercial application

    Barnett, Josh; Seabright, Matthew; Williams, Henry A.M.; Nejati, Mahla; Scarfe, Alastair J.; Bell, Jamie; Jones, Mark Hedley; Martinson, P.; Schaare, P.; Duke, Mike (2017)
    This paper contains the initial evaluation of a novel platform mounted robotic pollination system. Advancement in artificial pollination is an important step forward in agricultural sectors due to the global decline of ...
  • Work distribution of multiple Cartesian robot arms for kiwifruit harvesting

    Barnett, Josh; Duke, Mike; Au, Chi Kit; Lim, Shen Him (ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2020-02-01)
    Employing multiple robot arms for kiwifruit harvesting can raise the efficiency since the task completion time is shortened. However, task partitioning and reachability are two major concerns. It is found that the task ...
  • Workspace analysis of Cartesian robot system for kiwifruit harvesting

    Au, Chi Kit; Barnett, Josh; Lim, Shen Hin; Duke, Mike (Emerald Publishing Limited, 2020)
    Purpose – This paper aims to investigate if a Cartesian robot system for kiwifruit harvesting works more effectively and efficiently than an articulated robot system. The robot is a key component in agricultural automation. ...
