Ripe Robotics Autonomous Apple Picker

Ripe Robotics designs, builds, and operates robots that pick apples and stone fruit. Our goal is to expand into adjacent opportunities (analysis, sorting, pruning) & leverage data gathered on-farm to build a fully automated system of agriculture.

We have a working prototype (built with <AUD$1.3m funding & 4 engineers) in field trials with 3 large customers, and we have another 30 companies on waitlist who spend a combined >AUD$30m annually on fruit picking.

We are in early commercial trials in Shepparton, Australia, and will be scaling up our fleet in 2023 and 2024.
