George Kantor

Senior Systems Scientist

Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute

Dr. George Kantor has 20 years of research experience in developing and deploying robotic technologies for real-world applications such as agriculture, mining, and scientific exploration. One of his current projects is using imaging in viticulture crops to provide nondestructive crop yield predictions, crop quality assessments, and pruning weight measurements. His group is exploring similar technologies in apple orchards, specifically pursuing automated apple detection to facilitate harvest from an automated harvest platform that carries human pickers.
