    In a sustainable society, it is necessary to develop systems that produce enough food and energy while also preserving the environment. Both agricultural production for food generation and photovoltaics for renewable energy production require large, open fields. In this research study, we investigate the feasibility of combining food and energy production into a single field by examining the effects of installing photovoltaic equipment above land used for farming. We grew komatsuna, kabu, mizuna, and spinach underneath photovoltaic equipment, and investigated the influence of shading from the photovoltaic equipment on plant growth and yields during winter cultivation. As expected, both the amount of solar radiation and the air and soil temperature were lower under the photovoltaics than those under the open field. The growth rate of komatsuna, kabu, and mizuna were slower. However, yields and qualities sufficient to meet market demands remained possible with extension of the cultivation periods. Therefore, although temperature and solar radiation are reduced under the photovoltaic equipment in winter, it is nevertheless possible to produce vegetables in the farmland, providing a novel opportunity to realize an integrated agricultural system with parallel production of food and energy.

    © 2019 China Agricultural University The harvesting of fresh kiwifruit is a labor-intensive operation that accounts for more than 25% of annual production costs. Mechanized harvesting technologies are thus being developed to reduce labor requirements for harvesting kiwifruit. To improve the efficiency of a harvesting robot for picking kiwifruit, we designed an end-effector, which we report herein along with the results of tests to verify its operation. By using the established method of automated picking discussed in the literature and which is based on the characteristics of kiwifruit, we propose an automated method to pick kiwifruit that consists of separating the fruit from its stem on the tree. This method is experimentally verified by using it to pick clustered kiwifruit in a scaffolding canopy cultivation. In the experiment, the end-effector approaches a fruit from below and then envelops and grabs it with two bionic fingers. The fingers are then bent to separate the fruit from its stem. The grabbing, picking, and unloading processes are integrated, with automated picking and unloading performed using a connecting rod linkage following a trajectory model. The trajectory was analyzed and validated by using a simulation implemented in the software Automatic Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems (ADAMS). In addition, a prototype of an end-effector was constructed, and its bionic fingers were equipped with fiber sensors to detect the best position for grabbing the kiwifruit and pressure sensors to ensure that the damage threshold was respected while picking. Tolerances for size and shape were incorporated by following a trajectory groove from grabbing and picking to unloading. The end-effector separates clustered kiwifruit and automatically grabs individual fruits. It takes on average 4–5 s to pick a single fruit, with a successful picking rate of 94.2% in an orchard test featuring 240 samples. This study shows the grabbing–picking–unloading robotic end-effector has significant potential to facilitate the harvesting of kiwifruit.

    © 2018 The success of organic and green agricultural fruit production depends on quality and cost. As the kiwifruit industry becomes ever more commercialized, it is in the interests of the industry to mechanize production, which can promote industrialization and improve industrial value and market prospects. Currently, New Zealand, Italy, Chile, and China carry out research into the mechanism of kiwifruit production. This review describes in detail the current state of the art of pollination, harvesting and grading equipment, including detection and identification, non-destructive end effector, harvesting robots and grading devices. Process technologies that include artificial pollination, harvest mechanization, grading and standardization of production problems are analysed and compared. These problems directly affect the quality of kiwifruit products. Finally, to solve the various problems that the kiwifruit industry experiences, it is necessary to accelerate the development of mechanized kiwifruit production, realize the mechanization of information acquisition and standardization in order to advance precision agriculture and agricultural wisdom for the future. Mechanization of the kiwifruit industry must adapt to adjustments in how China's economic structure develops.

    To separate kiwifruits and realize nondestructive picking and unloading of clustered kiwifruits in scaffolding cultivation, an end-effector with a "grabbing-picking-sliding" harvesting method and automatic picking and unloading connecting rod linkage following its trajectory model is presented based on the research on manual picking methods, the fruits growth and their physical properties. Kiwifruit position are detected by optic fiber sensors, clamping force detected by pressure sensors, shape and size of bionic picking fingers set thereby and an integration harvesting prototype following trajectory model from grabbing, picking to unloading designed and evaluated in the lab and orchard. The evaluation test showed that the end-effector of the prototype with optic fiber sensors on the fingers to detect the best position for grabbing, the pressure sensors to guarantee a nondestructive picking within damage threshold and adjusting spring for fruits size and shape tolerance, can integratedly grab and separate adjacent or clustered kiwifruits, then pick and unload individual fruit without destruction.

    釜炒り茶の品質を最も左右する新たな炒り葉機の開発を行った。茶葉を効率的に乾燥させるために,茶葉の中心部から水分を移動させる揉みの作用と上下から挟み込む伝熱方法とを組み合わせた回分式および連続式の炒り葉機を試作した。各機を使用した性能実験の結果,回分式では良質な茶葉を炒ることができるな蒸気排気口面積を見出すことができた。しかし連続式炒り葉機では,上方から茶葉を供給する際に投入量が安定しなかったことが原因で炒りの過不足が生じ,品質の低下を招いた。
