Background: With a growing demand for blueberries, the planting area of blueberries is also
increasing. However, the main method of picking blueberries is the traditional manual picking, so
the operation of picking is the most time-consuming and laborious in the chain of production.
Objective: By analyzing and discussing the patents of equipment of blueberry picking, some valuable
conclusions have been drawn to predict future research, and the development of equipment used in
Methods: This paper sketches out various current representative patents relevant to the equipment of
Results: Through summarizing a large number of patents about equipment of blueberry picking, the
characters of those patents are analyzed and compared, and further development tendency of equipment
of blueberry picking is discussed.
Conclusion: The research on the multifunction, intelligence, versatility of blueberry picking machine
is helpful in solving the problems of low efficiency, low quality and poor versatility.
