Taylor described plans for a robot to assist in the packing of strawberries, which is arduous and boring for people. “They have quite a labour intensive operation,” he said. “Also, they have a very large turnover of staff, they have a lot of trouble with training, they have a lot of trouble with people doing what’s basically a terribly boring job.” “But it is something that the robot can do 24 hours, seven days a week,” Taylor said.
