Windrow guidance for forage harvester
The WGS Pro sensor system, which is based on the TiM 2D laser scanner and mounted on the forage harvester’s roof, determines the position and height profile of the windrows. The system uses this information to calculate a target trajectory and makes it available on the CAN bus. The forage harvester can be guided automatically along this path. Furthermore, the WGS Pro continuously determines the windrow volume and also sends this information to the CAN bus. This allows the speed to be controlled automatically so that the forage harvester can work at its optimum performance.
