"World's first fully commercial integrated autonomous fruit harvesting system

Darwin Harvesting Group and Tevel Aerobotics Technologies join forces

"We are very proud to announce that Darwin wcdi (we can do it), the leading fruit harvesting platform creator, of Italy and Spain and Tevel Aerobotics Technologies LTD, a developer of fruit harvesting robots, of Israel, have joined forces to create the world's first fully commercial integrated autonomous fruit harvesting system."

Yaniv Maor (Tevel) and Stefan Scharrer (Darwin), founders of both companies: “We are combining our visions about the future of fruit harvesting mechanization by creating this innovative project of integration between FAR - Flying Autonomous Robots - and Tecnofruit, the go-to harvesting system in more than 30 countries. Thanks to the Israeli-Spanish-Italian working group, with broad experience, skills and knowledge it was possible to create the first robotic harvesting system ready to be used in the field. Using the current Darwin award-winning fruit harvester we can now combine Tecnofruit’s and Tevel’s technologies to create the world’s first fully automated fruit picking system.”

The benefits for you:

Control & performance measurement

  • Real time information on quantity, quality, size, weight, and color of the fruit picked;
  • Reporting of harvesting results: growers can protect their position in the marketing chain;
  • Integration into smart farming processes

Performance boost & savings

  • Labour & manpower cost reduction
  • Gentle gathering of fruits by FAR consistently (without human interference); improvement of the fruit quality
  • Careful conveying of fruits through our proven conveyor belt system into the bin
  • Picking time reduction
  • 24/7 working time
  • Harvesting of fruit in the best ripening condition with consequent better cool storage conservation and better price

Support & experience

  • Our experience will be at your disposal to choose in presales the right integrated FAR harvester
  • Training and technical support: you will never be alone in the field
  • Our expert team will be always on your side to support and optimize your crop, 24/7
  • Software update and monitoring

Flexibility & simplification

  • System has been proven on different kinds of fruit: apples, peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots
  • Access to our system in different ways: purchase / rental / contractors
  • “Bolt on” solution – upgrade your current Tecnofruit fruit picking harvesting system
  • The robotic harvester and the traditional Tecnofruit can coexist in the same orchard

Future improvement

  • Pruning, thinning and other field tasks that need to be automized (under development). You can always use the latest version of our harvester
  • Harvesting of additional types of fruits: citrus, avocado, mango, etc.

Please visit us at Hall 9, stand B25 to see a fully live demonstration of this exciting solution, displays held daily at 10.00 - 14.00 - 16.00.
