An Israeli company has developed an autonomous drone that can pick fruit or be used for thinning and pruning tasks in apple and orange orchards.

According to an article published by CTech, Tevel Aerobotics Technologies, founded in 2016, last year finished the working prototype of the drone. It is working on a patented fleet of drones, which it hopes will hit the market by 2020.
Tevel’s drones detect fruit type, blemishes and quality. 


Though they only work during the day, the company told Ctech that they are working on giving the drone night-vision capabilities. They are also working on making the drone effective for use with additional fruits.
