Hippo Harvest Elevates Farming Efficiency with Autonomous Mobile Robots
Hippo Harvest is a controlled environment agriculture (CEA) company that uses plant science, machine learning and robotics to sustainably grow vegetables in greenhouse environments. The company's technology provides health and sustainability conscious shoppers with fresh and affordable produce.
Hippo Harvest turned to Zebra's Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) to help cultivate lettuce that can withstand the challenges posed by outdoor farming, such as droughts, floods and other extreme weather conditions. The company also wanted a solution that would address labor shortages, be more cost-effective than traditional indoor greenhouses and help make food systems more resilient in uncertain conditions.
