Advanced Sensing for Efficient Autonomous Harvesting

LeddarTech’s Solution: Leddar™ M16 Multi-Element Sensing Module In this case, we recommended our 16-element sensing module, as its accurate and robust ranging capabilities allow for easy differentiation between the heights of the harvested vs. non-harvested crops. Moreover, the dust created by this task does not have a significant impact on the performance of this sensor, so the detection and ranging capabilities remain accurate in such an environment. Product features: ÔÇ∑ - Large detection area with immunity to ambient light and dust ÔÇ∑ - Ease of integration and ruggedness ÔÇ∑ - Best cost/performance ratio as compared with competing detection technologies. The Outcome The Leddar™M16 was an excellent solution for this particular application, as it was easily integrated into the controller of the autonomous vehicle’s on-board navigation computer. Thecustomer was therefore able to include value-added ranging features in their new, high-performance autonomous farming systems, allowing vehicles to follow crops more precisely and ultimately increasing overall harvesting efficiency.
