NREC developed autonomous and semi-autonomous robotic systems for moving containerized plants to and from the field.
NREC’s robotic field-container handling systems make the labor-intensive process of moving containerized plants more efficient. Both the autonomous and semi-autonomous systems handled the task of picking up, moving, and setting down multiple containers at the same time. This reduces the horticulture industry's reliance on manual labor, increases nursery productivity, improves field safety, and reduces plant handling costs.
