An intelligent robot arm picks up a complete row of plants from a container, adjusts the size of the grabbers and places the plants in the plant carriers of the WPS system. Each gripper is equipped with a sensor that detects the presence of the plant. The system is capable of picking up plants without error even if they do not fit neatly in a rowr. The system is also equipped with 'fallen plant detection'.
Plants then can be scanned by a camera. If the plant does not meet the requirements, it will be returned to the same robot, which will then place it neatly in a row on the container.

Why is this module going to make you happy?

This intelligent robot is your best employee. The big advantage of this robotic arm is that it can do two tasks, for example placing plants in the carrier and removing plants from a carrier and putting them on tables in a subsequent movement. He does so with great reliability and accuracy, even though the plants are not completely in place. Something that other robots can not do.
