Driver assistance systems for harvesting vehicles

AUTONOMOUS PROCESSES FOR MORE YIELD

As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once put it himself, “sowing is not as difficult as reaping”. Since then, much has changed owing to the motorization and mechanization of agriculture. And yet, harvesting crops is still an activity in which every helping hand is appreciated. Solutions for improving the efficiency in the harvesting process are therefore like a seed ready to flourish. One instance of this “technological seed” is the WGS (Windrow Guidance System) from SICK.   Continue reading
