Smarter tomato harvesting.
It starts today.

Autonomous tomato harvesting

Rethink the way you harvest

The Certhon Harvest Robot detects, cuts and transports your tomatoes to boxes all by itself. And the best thing is: the deep-learning technology will make the robot smarter with each harvest. With the data it provides, you can eventually forecast and plan your best growth yet.

  • Detects

    The robot can detect the fruits and sense which tomatoes are ready for harvesting thanks to vision technology.

  • Cuts

    The scissors are multifunctional and can grab and cut the tomatoes all in one.

  • Transports

    After the tomatoes have been cut, the flexible arm transports the tomatoes to the harvesting box.

  • Learns

    Thanks to deep-learning technology, the harvest robot gets smarter with each harvest.

  • Smart In the near future, the Certhon Harvest Robot can also scout the yield and measure the climate and health of the plant, including the functionality to protect for pests and diseases.

  • Multi-functional Detects, approaches, cuts, holds, and transports the product to the harvesting box.

  • Flexible Moves in multiple directions to find the optimum position and route for harvesting.

  • Anytime Thanks to smart cameras and lighting, the robot can harvest day and night.

Let’s change the way we grow

Together we can completely transform the world’s growing system. The Certhon Harvest Robot shows what we are capable of when we combine smart technology, ambitious people and horticultural knowledge.

 

And this is only just the start.

Our mission

When plant whisperers and technology experts grow as one, the entire world changes

Imagine a world unbound by the rules of growing. Where anything can be grown anywhere, no matter the season or climate. And where everyone in the world has access to healthy, safe and sustainable food.

 

This is the core of our existence. By combining plant science and artificial intelligence, we can completely transform the world’s growing system from within. Whether you want to increase yields, quality, and profits. Grow lettuce in the summer or tomatoes in the winter. Or operate a completely autonomous farm.

 

Together, we can innovate, design, and build a better way to grow. We grow as one. Are you ready to join?
