The Lely Grazeway R makes managing grazing and certifying free-range milk easier
Lely introduces the Lely Grazeway R, a new system that automatically registers outdoor grazing. The system is composed of a registration gate and an associated reporting tool, which shows how long the cows have been out to pasture for. This makes managing grazing easier and shows the amount of grazing time per cow for free-range certification, which is something that is being asked for in more and more countries.

Industrial robots more flexible thanks to soccer and care robots
Dealing with the unexpected (read: non-programmed events) is a routine task for TU Eindhoven’s soccer and care robots. After all, you never know what an opponent or user will do next. Industrial robots, too, can benefit from increased independence and autonomy. For this reason, the university has set up a pioneering research project together with industrial partners - included Lely - to provide mobile industrial robots with an open world view that adapts to changes in the environment. An important aspect of this is that the robots learn to understand what they see, allowing them to adapt better to new circumstances and situations.
