Abstract Since labour costs are high and still increasing, automated harvesting of fruits as cucumber, paprika and tomato will be important in the near future. Supported by the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fishery a project to develop a system for robot harvesting of cucumbers in greenhouses started in 1996. The robot harvester is mounted on an autonomous vehicle that serves as a mobile platform. The robot can move through the greenhouse using the heating pipes (figure 1). Three important topics of this research are vision systems, fruit detection and 3d localization
