NREC Named Semi-Finalist in Blueberry Harvesting Competition
March 28, 2016

A team from CMU’s National Robotics Engineering Center has been named one of four semi-finalists and awarded $10,000 in the Naturipe Blue Challenge, a contest to develop innovative technologies for harvesting blueberries. Dimi Apostolopoulos, senior systems scientist, is principal investigator and Gabriel Goldman, senior robotics engineer, was instrumental in developing the technical concept for the NREC entry. Blueberries sold as fresh fruit now must be picked by hand.

Naturipe will select which of the semi-final teams – or combinations of teams – will be funded to further develop and potentially implement their ideas.
