Measuring the distance between the spray boom and crop

UM30 ultrasonic sensors are used to guide the spray booms on crop protection sprayers completely automatically. Depending on the spray boom construction, up to four sensors are required. The sensors are used to ensure the correct spraying distance, e.g., for crops that have grown very unevenly or for different terrains.
