Apple Drone by Tevel Works Day and Night to Help Farmers Harvest Fruits from TreesThis drone was not made by Apple. It’s for apples, though.Tevel Aerobatics Technologies created a special drone for fruit farmers. The apple drone is a contraption that can pick up fruits and drop them off at a collection device or container. The flying tethered quadcopter is equipped with an outstretched arm attached that allows it to be a great help during harvesting season. Tevel’s drone is a way of automating fruit harvesting. The company came up with the idea of using multiple drones at the same time. The drones would be tethered to a central machine that provides unlimited power to each drone as they plucked apples from multiple locations on a farm. The apple drones have sensors and cameras that determine if a fruit is ready for picking and knowing where they should place them. Image credit: Tevel Aerobotics Technologies Ltd.#apple #fruits #harvesting #automation #machinery #technology #drone #TevelAerobaticsTechnologies

Robot Only Fast Food: This KFC Restaurant in Russia is Entirely Run by RobotsThis is probably a glimpse of the future. Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) introduced their take on a fully automated staff in their restaurant in Moscow. The fast-food chain reduced the interactions between customers and staff as much as possible.Dmitry Ageev, a KFC representative, noted that the company had built the new outlet before the outbreak of coronavirus in Russia. It had experimented with ways to create a more hygienic way to order its menu items.As seen in the video by World News Network, a robotic hand places the order into a box after it is cooked. The customer, in turn, can open the box with a code given to them. When it comes to payment, the restaurant, following its automated concept, accepts bank cards or face biometric data after completing a registration process.Image credit: World News Network#KFC #Robot #Automation #FastFood
