Autopilot - Guidance System
From Mechanical Hoes
This new technology is based on a camera coupled to a computer. The computer controls a hydraulic cylinder, which acts on the steering wheels of the cultivator. This system can perform a precise steering of row crop cultivators thus improving weeding efficiency. The hoeing can be done closer to the plants than would otherwise be possible with manual steering. The operation is easy and comfortable. There are no risks of human mistakes as the vision guidance systems keeps the cultivator in the exact position in the center of the row - even if the ground slopes. The Autopilot can work with a fixed pump and a variable pump. (Has to be specified with the order)
Range of use:
Vegetable gardening, tree nurseries, special crops
Computer and Camera are aligned directly above a crop row. The camera senses the position of the row of plants. The advanced software calculates the position of the row and calculates the necessary correction of the steering wheels. Hydraulic cylinder with electromagnetic valve. The cylinder acts on the steering wheels of the hoe. Control box with LCD-display in the tractor.
