A comment to the website from Australia indicates that research into robotics on mushrooms farms is proceeding at a pace.
The comment from Karen Miles in Victoria reads as follows: “Thank you for sending out a request regarding picking machine for mushroom growers. Australia's CSIRO has an entire section developing Robotics along with wifi functionality using vision sensors and other receptors. I would be interested in a group or consortia or association arrangement to approach them directly. If interested please email Karen_Miles@bigpond.com “
