Here in CA, several farmworkers died of heat stroke this year.  it's dangerous work.  Robots like these can help during extreme conditions but if it isn't cost effective, farmers won't buy in. 

The research is great.  I can't wait to hear the final conclusions when the project ends in 2014.

Beth, this could have lots of other applications in agriculture as well.  In many parts of the world it is harder to find workers who want to do this type of thing.  With all the other mechanziation on the farm, I would expect farmers would welcome it.

Some how the juxtaposition of the the beautiful, tranquil vineyards with a high-tech looking robot is a bit jarring. However, I'll take whatever innovation possible to make sure that glass of wine is ready for dinner. On a serious note, it really seems like the robotics industry is turning a corner. You can't read anything these days (even mainstream news sites) without happening upon some new robotics invention that isn't aimed at high-tech applications like aerospace or the military, but rather plain old worker tasks like this one. Pretty exciting times.
