Windrow guidance for balers

The WGS object detection system is based on the TiM 2D LiDAR sensor and determines the position and height profile of the windrow. The system uses this information to calculate a target trajectory and makes it available on the CAN bus. Using this trajectory, the tractor-baler combination can be guided automatically. Furthermore, the WGS continuously determines the windrow volume and also sends this information to the CAN bus. This allows the speed to be controlled automatically, therefore providing the optimum volume flow so that the baler can work at its peak performance.
