The sensors are mounted in the front bumper and will stop the feeding robot as soon as they detect an obstacle within 1 and 0,5 metres of the machine. As soon as the road becomes clear, the feeding robot automatically resumes its route. During feed dispensing and pushing, the obstacle detection sensors switch off to prevent cows at the feed fence from stopping the machine.
The obstacle detection sensors can be retro-fitted to the second-generation Lely Vector feeding robots. For more information, please contact your local Lely Center.
