Sector: Agriculture – Mobile conveyor belt (vehicle)
Industry: Agriculture Technology
Product: Agricultural harvesting Robot
Market Size: Local market size: 2 Billion Rands
Differentiation: Arci reduces the harvest costs of blueberries by acting as a conveyor belt for farm works. In addition, the “Distance to market” of Arci is a competitive advantage as the product development is in a farming area where many potential customers are, and the lean operating structure of Arci is an added advantage. Using 3rd party attachments, Arci can be modified to include other priority tasks such as spraying, pest scouting, UV treatment, etc.
Investment Stage: Pre-Seed
