This paper presents a proof-of-concept platform for demonstrating robotic harvesting of summer- varieties of cauliflower, and early tests performed under laboratory conditions. The platform is designed to be modular and has two dexterous robotic arms with variable-stiffness technology. The bi-manual configuration enables the separation of grasping and cutting behaviours into separate robot manipulators. By exploiting the passive compliance of the variable-stiffness arms, the system can operate with both grasping and cutting tool close to the ground. Multiple 3D vision cameras are used to track the cauliflowers in real-time, and to attempt to assess the maturity. Early experiments with the platform in the laboratory highlight the potential and challenges of the platform.
