Autonomous robots to support fruit picking

Innovate UK funded project for fruit transportation.

PI: Prof. Marc Hanheide and Dr. Grzegorz Cielniak
Project year: 2019

I worked on mobile robot autonomy in this project. Some of the tools I used are AMCL for robot localization, ROS Nav Stack and topological navigation. We used the Thorvald robot from Saga Robotics (see below).

During this project, I also got an opportunity to visit The Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) in Norway for Lincon-NMBU-Saga summer workshop. A glimpse from our workshop:
