let's pick the future of fruit together

Get in touch with us to join our waiting list

Meet eve

Eve is our latest generation robot. We are currently running trials on apples, oranges, and plums, and getting her ready for commercial scale harvesting in 2022.

She has everything needed to pick fruit off the tree, distribute it into a bin, and drop the bins off at the end of the row. She uses a soft suction system to minimise damage to fruit at the tree, increasing the value of produce compared with human labour.

She is equipped with advanced artificial intelligence and connected to the cloud so that you can track her progress wherever you are. If you are interested in booking a trial with us or learning more, reach out by clicking the button below.

Automated Harvesting

We harvest fruit autonomously so that you don't need to worry about finding and training people every season

Data Analysis

We collect valuable data and produce meaningful insights so that you can improve the way you grow fruit

Damage minimisation

We pick with greater care and precision than humans so that you can maximise the value of the produce you grow

Accessible pricing

We work on a per bin rate so that you can easily adopt and integrate this technology on your orchard, no matter the size.

About Us

Every year there are trillions of pieces of fruit picked by hand. Farmers continually struggle to find and manage people which results in huge levels of waste and lost profit.

Ripe Robotics was founded with the goal of changing an industry that has been left behind by technological innovation. Fruit has been picked the same way for as long as we can remember, but recent advances in artificial intelligence and robotics have now made automation possible.

We are fast approaching full scale commercialisation of our technology and are always interested in hearing from growers, engineers, and investors. If you would like to join our journey, please reach out to us at contact@riperobotics.com.
