Sensors for driverless cars’ navigation
Farming is currently considered one of the most dangerous jobs in the UK. The agricultural industry involves the use of heavy and dangerous machinery, on complex sites where conditions can often be poor.
Agricultural automation is a safer alternative or addition to farms and ranches, where accidents can easily happen. Our sensors are integrable with agricultural equipment, providing reliable data for navigation and anti-collision. The high resolution sensors can detect debris and will eliminate collisions between heavy machinery and workers.
- Fog, snow and rain
- Fire, smoke and hot gasses
- Water and spray
- All levels of light
- Dust, dirt and sandstorms
- 360° scanning abilities
- High-resolution imaging
- Easily integrable
- On-board processing
- Long detection range
How Does it Work?
Sensors can be easily installed and commissioned. Placing sensors on farming or monitoring equipment will increase productivity and efficiency. Sensors can navigate and detect any obstructions which may cause a collision. Advance warning of this will stop equipment damage or accidents, meaning expenditure costs are lowered and farm safety is improved.
Why Choose Navtech Radar's Sensors for Agricultural Automation?
- Uninterrupted operation
Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the sensors maximise the use of time and therefore generate more produce and income. They can operate in all weather and light conditions too. Therefore, productivity is not lost during periods of poor conditions.
- Large detection range
The long detection range means the sensors are suitable for large and complex sites
- Minimal maintenance
No cleaning of the sensors is required, making it an ideal choice for farm environments. Maintenance is only needed at intervals of five years, meaning ownership costs remain low.
- Low cost of ownership
Agricultural automation means less manual resources required. Savings can also be seen on electricity costs since the sensors operate in complete darkness.
