A robotic agriculture system for date cultivation.

The unique system is connected to and towed by a tractor. The system operator directs the device to the tree trunk. The device sets and levels itself accordingly at each tree once activated by the operator. A device located at the end of the robotic arm is directed by 3D cameras and sensors to navigate to its destination at the treetop. The device performs its designated task, and upon completion of the activity, the operator disconnects it from the tree trunk, lowers the device, and proceeds to the next tree.

Value for farmers:

  • 84% savings on labor costs
  • Maximize employee safety
  • Significantly reduce insurance cost
  • Accurate work quality
  • ROI for the farmer – 2 years

The Vision

To become the global leader for robotic cultivation.

The Product

RoboDate is an AI robotic system aided by sensor guides and computer vision for the autonomous execution of all 5 palm date cultivation operations: thinning out, tying, bagging, harvesting, and pruning.

Through our business model, we will sell the system and provide maintenance and service via contracts. Responsible for software updates, build unique SAAS model applications, train customer employees, and share agricultural data with farmers based on field data collection.

Problem & Solution

Manpower cost and availability are the biggest competitive constraints in date palm agriculture, with labor cost constituting about 50% of the total cost of cultivation and overall care for palm groves. 

Worker safety during the various activities is also an issue. There are many work-related injuries caused by the thorns, secateurs, and branches, in addition to the risk of working at heights. This leads to high insurance costs and compromises work quality.

RoboDate autonomously performs all the required actions and activities required for palm grove cultivation, without any human contact.
