Korechi Innovations Inc. presents their first robot for the golf industry – the Pik’r™, a dedicated golf ball retrieval robot. This product was first tested in 2019, and since then has been rigorously tested and perfected at several driving ranges.
The Pik’r™ is the world’s first robot that automates existing standard 3 and 5 gang golf ball picking machines at any driving range with turf-grass or artificial turf, which means that it can pick up to 4000 balls per round or about 52,000 balls per 13-hour shift. This automated golf ball picker machine is designed to alleviate the labor shortage that the industry is facing while enhancing the safety of operations. The Pik’r™ is all-electric and runs on safe and long-lasting lithium batteries and can cover up to 7 acres per hour. It is guided by high-precision GNSS RTK sensors with sub-inch accuracy. It uses a camera with Artificial Intelligence to detect and avoid obstacles. Use the provided rugged tablet computer with the RoamIO-MLT™ software to remotely control Pik’r™ from anywhere in the world, generate paths and schedule golf ball picking for the entire day.
