BrambleBee Robotic Pollinator

BrambleBee Robotic PollinatorSep-09-18 The BrambleBee robotic pollinator could step in to help ensure healthy crops in the face of declining bee populations.

Developed by a team from West Virginia University, the BrambleBee is equipped with an array of sensors that allow it to detect flower clusters and note their location. Once the bot has completed a scan of the plants, it will analyze the flower locations to position itself in the most efficient place to reach the maximum number of flowers to be pollinated. The BrambleBee’s flower mapping was inspired by the mason bees, and its pollination mechanism was designed to gently distribute pollen without damaging the flowers.
