Robot Harv Is Meeting the Demand of Worker Shortage; Not Replacing Workers that Harvest Fruits and Vegetables

The future of agricultural work is developing in Florida, striving to ease labor shortages and reduce the cost of food. Harv, a nickname for the latest model from automation company Harvest CROO Robotics is programmed to do the work of 30 people while attempting to harvest vegetables and fruits with care (without damaging and bruising).

"If we don't solve this with automation, fresh fruits and veggies won't be affordable or even available to the average person."
