Lely introduces obstacle detection sensors for the Vector feeding robot
The Lely Vector feeding robot is supplied to customers equipped with a fully integrated impact detection bumper. As soon as the bumper senses an obstruction, the machine will stop. With the new obstacle detection sensors, the machine will also stop before it collides with any restrictions in its path. The sensors further increase the safety of people and animals on the farm, and can also prevent damage to vehicles that are parked along the route of the feeding robot.
