ARCi Technologies is an AgriTech startup with the support of Backsberg Estate Cellars in the Cape Winelands area. Our short term vision is to develop an autonomous platform, called ARCi, which significantly improves the efficiency of traditional blueberry harvesting methods. ARCi acts as a mobile conveyor belt, eliminating the need for pickers to carry loads of fruit up and down orchard rows. In the future we will expand on ARCi’s applications through various third party attachments, enabling it to accomplish a number of essential tasks such as spraying, pest scouting, UV treatment, etc. This provides the farmer not only with valuable insight and peace of mind regarding the status of their crops and operations, but also a tool with which they can act on it.
