AbstractPhase I of this project will seek to establish feasibility of the selective harvesting system for high density grove through scaled prototype testing. Our focus will be on developing a new end effector concept with an integrated hyper-redundant forearm, along with an integrated fruit detection sensory suite. This system will be integrated and tested using our most advanced image processing and visual servo control algorithms, along with our newly developed macro-positioning manipulator. Phase I prototype testing of the sub-system will be carried out using the University of Florida citrus harvesting test-bed.
