My friend has acquired a (small) wine yard to discover how much work it is tending and harvesting the grapes.

Now we are musing to enlist robotic help. The vine stocks are usually connected by a stiff wire, so some dangling machine might be feasible.

We are looking for references/inspirations for an agricultural robotic vine assistant. Any ideas?

  • $\begingroup$ While interesting, the question (as it is) is not a good fit for stackexchange. You'd need to do some research and come up with a more specific question. $\endgroup$ – Shahbaz Mar 20 '14 at 18:58
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for that... just getting started. Would be asking for "vertical movement of a dangling robot" be specific enough? $\endgroup$ – stwissel Mar 20 '14 at 21:56
  • $\begingroup$ No. But asking for "why when I use motor X controlled with algorithm Y on a robot dangling from a wire, the robot doesn't move smoothly?" would make a specific enough question. The way the question is currently, is open-ended. The answers would be some vague idea of what may perhaps work. It doesn't produce solid answers that correctly solve a specific problem which can be reused in different applications. (Read more in the faq) $\endgroup$ – Shahbaz Mar 20 '14 at 23:32

    $\begingroup$ Take a look at this question for example or this one or this one for a general idea of what is specific enough. $\endgroup$ – Shahbaz Mar 20 '14 at 23:37
