Meet Clive

Clive is our field prototype. He’s been picking both apples and oranges throughout 2020 as part of our technical development. Clive analyses every piece of fruit for quality and ripeness, then automatically picks it at the optimal time. The soft suction tube and bin-filler allow gentle distribution of the fruit all the way from the tree to the bin.

Right now we’re building Clive’s successor, Eve! Eve is our next-generation picking machine, able to pick apples, oranges, and stone fruit faster, more reliably, and at a higher quality. Eve is scheduled for commercial trials beginning in February 2021, and will be the first of many commercial machines.

About Us

Ripe Robotics builds and manages fruit picking robots. Growers can contract us to pick some of their fruit at a better price and higher quality than a human picker.

After successful early field trials, we are now working towards commercialisation, and are accepting reservations from both orange and apple growers for our picking services in 2021, 2022, and 2023. How does it work?


We are currently accepting reservations for our picking services for 2021 and later years, with only a small deposit up front to secure your place. Adoption of fully automated picking on an orchard is generally gradual - we start by picking only a small number of bins in the first season, and work up to full automation over a number of years.

Please contact us at for more information, or to arrange a demonstration of our technology.
