by using collaborative robot, agricultural enterprises can have better arrangements during peak season and off-season and optimize their production schedules accordingly .
there is a wide range of products in agricultural industry, and customers often raise up new requirements on specifications, packaging requirements, which leads to the change of production line. collaborative robot can be reconfigured in a short time to meet the requirements of new production process. due to the limitation of maturity, the agricultural products must be harvested in a short period, therefore during peak season and off-season the production demands varies dramatically, and collaborative robot is ready to be deployed at any time during the work cycle, which offers solution for different needs on manpower during peak season and off-season. during some production processes with heavy loads and of high repetition (such as packaging and sorting), repetitive manual operations will lead to worker’s fatigue and decrease the product quality, but collaborative robots can easily solve the above problems and reduce the risk of worker’s injuries.
