Great idea…congratulation.

But you still have two extremely difficult problems to solve.
1.- the harvesting arm has to have great mobility so it can cut coconut stem which generally is protected by a hard shield from the botton.
2.- Once coconuts are cut how will you avoid that they fall over the platform a break it. It will need to withstand at least 20 kilos dropped from 50 centimeters at least.
