Meet Wall-Ye: The French grape-picking robot which can work day and night – and may well put vineyard workers out of a job | Mail Online

If your secret dream is to head to France to take a summer job picking wine, you best be quick or you will be out of luck.

For a new vineyard worker is around, who has four wheels, two arms and six cameras, prunes 600 vines per day, and never calls in sick.

The Wall-Ye V.I.N. robot, brainchild of Burgundy-based inventor Christophe Millot, is one of the robots being developed around the world aimed at vineyards struggling to find the labour they need.

It takes on chores such as pruning and de-suckering – removing unproductive young shoots – while collecting valuable data on the health and vigour of the soil, fruit and vine stocks.
