Taylor, who has been designing these robots, said the difference between this arm and much bigger robotic arms was that the former could work alongside people. Larger robots were often too dangerous to work in close proximity with people, ABC reported. Taylor described plans to make use of robots to assist in the packing of strawberries - which could be an incredibly arduous task for an individual.
"Obviously, if your entire job consisted of standing at the end of the line and taking a small box of strawberries and putting it into a pallet, you probably won't last very long. "But it's something that the robot can do 24 hours, seven days a week," said Taylor.
