The RIPPA (Robot for Intelligent Perception and Precision Application) autonomously navigates its way around an orchard. It is mounted with the VIIPA (Variable Injection Intelligent Precision Applicator), which identifies the exact location of apples and then sprays them for bugs. The system has been developed by the University of Sydney who are also working on a robot arm to pick apples.
