GRoW - AI 3D Vision Technology

Driven by machine learning

AI 3D vision technology

GRoW’s 3D vision capabilities – driven by AI – deliver high-resolution colour images for successful harvesting and provide detailed crop data for ongoing analysis. Our advanced algorithm means GRoW becomes smarter with every cut.

GRoW doesn’t just detect the truss, but scans the total environment to map and remember obstacles. Ripeness is assessed using a 12 colour grading, with multiple programmes for different varieties available.
GRoW - Dual robotic arms

Dual robotic arms

Double-sided capability

Dual robotic arms mean GRoW can pick both sides of the greenhouse row, making robotic harvesting faster than ever and taking a significant step forward for automated harvesting.

GRoW - Maximum reach and flexibility

Picks in any position

Maximum reach and flexibility

GRoW collects crops at any angle. Hard-to-reach trusses can be reached smoothly, flexibly, and accurately, even in restricted spaces.
GRoW - Designed for multiple varieties

Designed for multiple varieties

Smart shears

The smart-cutting shear mechanism allows GRoW to find the optimum position, make a precise cut, and secure the truss for any tomato crop - cherry-cocktail, mini-plum, vine or cocktail.

GRoW - Picking and boxing

Picking and boxing

Onboard boxing system

GRoW transfers picked trusses into standard-sized, reusable packaging containers for seamless integration with existing production processes. Full containers are automatically stacked and packed on the towed GRoW-Assist harvesting trolley.

GRoW - Destacking made easy

Automated crate management

Our fully automated box management system ensures a continuous supply of empty crates and containers for uninterrupted harvesting.

GroW - Autonomous Guided Vehicle

Perfect progress through the greenhouse

Autonomous Guided Vehicle

GRoW’s autonomous navigation uses an advanced drive system for fault-free navigation. Equipped with LiDAR safety sensors and a standalone safety controller, GRoW delivers efficiency and safety standards compliance.

GRoW - Wi-Fi and Cellular connection

24/7 dependability

Wi-Fi and Cellular connection

Thanks to built-in wireless comms, GRoW is always on and accessible via the cloud, providing real-time data collection and analytics for improved crop management, and 24/7 service and support.

Tomorrow’s farmhand today

Solving the labour challenge

An always-on robot worker, the GRoW automated harvester works 24/7. On your side and by your side, GRoW saves time and money, and brings a new level of control to the picking process whilst allowing more efficient and rewarding deployment of human labour.

The futureproof robot platform

With GRoW you’re investing in a futureproof platform that allows you to grow your business in new directions. From allocating human resources away from manual tasks to extensive data collection and scouting intelligence, GRoW adds flexibility to business management.

GRoW is the answer to labour shortages

GRoW is the answer to labour shortages

Greenhouse horticulture faces serious labour challenges, with scarcity of resource for crop maintenance and harvesting. Added to this, increasing expenses and reduced migration are leading to significant harvesting cost rises.


GRoW allows you to build your business without adding to your team of skilled workers. It makes you less dependent on seasonal labour, creates more predictable production, reduces training and onboarding for employees, and allows for more flexible use of employee skills.

80% savings in worker time

80% savings in worker time

Harvesting is the most labor-intensive task in the greenhouse, but GRoW can reduce human harvest hours for vine tomatoes by minimal 80%. This frees employees to be used more efficiently and intelligently, focusing on more important tasks and overseeing operations, with 1 operator managing up to 5 GRoW harvesters.

Ridder & MetoMotion

GRoW together

GRoW has been developed by Israeli robotics start-up MetoMotion and is distributed and serviced by Ridder, an experienced global leader in horticulture technology. Ridder and MetoMotion’s shared desire to help growers with labour shortages has resulted in a joint effort to make robotics widely available to the greenhouse industry.
