Abstract: To acquire the developing trend and ways of robotizing of tea plucking, with analyzing the developing backgrounds and situations of tea plucking robot both at commercial and agro automation, this article also analyses the reason why agriculture domain has a poor mechanization of tea plucking and points out existing problems. Finally, invention claims a selective tea leaf plucking robot belongs to agricultural automation. This robot is designed considering selective tea leaf plucking and ergonomics aspects, which helps to operate robot without any fatigue. The robot includes portable robot mechanism, multi-sensor, robot control unit, rail conveyer and distributing system with container arrangement.
