Paper Abstract

Clone nursery plants production is one of the important applications of bio-technology. Most of the production processes of bio-production are highly automated, but the transplanting process of the small nursery plants cannot be automated because the figures of small nursery plants are not stable. In this research, a transplanting robot system for clone nursery plants production is under development. 3-D vision system using relative stereo method detects the shapes and positions of small nursery plants through transparent vessels. A force controlled robot picks up the plants and transplants into a vessels with artificial soil.
