    Abstract

    The paper presents an information based systematic design method for robotics in greenhouses. The method was used to develop a de-leafing robot in a period of one year with a limited budget. This robot is used in this paper as a design example. This approach proved to be a success. The design methodology enabled the efficient design of a complex machine. Bottlenecks were identified at an early stage. The methodology produced insight into design alternatives, thus limiting trial and error. Within one year the de-leafing robot was tested in a greenhouse, with success.
