A robot called “Rubion” is programmed to choose only good strawberries. It is through 14 machines that will  collect enough strawberries to provide tennis fans at Wimbledon in London during the tournament.

According to the Daily Mail, the installation mechanism catches and fills the strawberry every five seconds, resulting in up to 360 kg a day. The Rubion robot has a built-in camera that uses sensors to ensure success only in good fruit.
