To provide an autonomous robotic ecosystem utilising different types of mobile platforms for intelligent inspection and selective harvesting of high value crops.


Advance beyond state of the art the core technologies of cognitive mechatronics and intellincence in agricultural robotics & bi-manual manipulation.


The BACCHUS project is formed by a well-ballanced consortium with 7 partners, including universities, research institutes, SMEs and wine producers.

Inspection Robot

BACCHUS will develop a mobile platform, enhanced with sensors such as RGB-D, hyperspectral camera and lidars in order to perform the inspection of crops like wine and table grapes, for health and ripeness.

Harvesting Robot

BACCHUS will develop a mobile dual arm robot with advanced cognitive capabilities for selective harvesting of high value crops, such as grapes of different varieties, in a human-like manner.
