Agricultural technology startup company Abundant Robotics to launch a robot with a taste for apples
SRI International, a technology research organisation, is to spin-out and launch Abundant Robotics, an agriculture technology company focused on helping make nutritious foods such as apples and other tree fruits more accessible.
Abundant will commercialize and build on several years of research initiatives in agricultural robotics at SRI.
Yamaha Motor Company says the company’s humanoid riding robot – MotoBot – has moved into the second phase of its development, and that the current partnership in joint development with SRI International is set to continue.
Presentations on the MotoBot headed by Yamaha Motor and SRI representatives took place at the last month’s CES, the global consumer electronics and technology trade show being held in Las Vegas, where in recent years, fields such as autonomous driving and robotics have been featured.
