If a research project from the University of Sydney has its way, robots will be replacing farm workers in the next five to 10 years.

According to the ABC, the project is getting robots to recognise fruit and is also working on developing trees which are easier to harvest.

Dr Salah Sukkariah, head of Robotics Research, said "That's that classic scenario, where you could sit down and say, I'm going to invest the next 10 years of Research and Development where a robot can reach into the middle of a tree and grab an apple, or you could actually change tree architecture.

"You have something of benefit to the tree in terms of efficiency, and almost make it easier for robotics."
