Laser Sensors for the Agriculture and Farming Industry

 

Worldwide farming is constantly progressing towards increased agricultural automation. Field operations and processing benefit from the integration of sensors to measure all aspects of the farming process. For example, machines used to pick crops from fields can be guided using laser rangefinders to detect the height of the crops relative to the ground. Here, the picking apparatus is constantly adjusting its height based on instantaneous crop height to maximize yield and minimize waste.

This application list is not intended to be exhaustive. The measuring tasks are by no means limited to these examples, and may serve as a suggestion for similar or completely different applications.
