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.

Lely and ZLTO start pilot for CO2 sequestration in Dutch soil
Today marked the start of Lely and ZLTO's pilot project focused on CO2 sequestration in Dutch soil. Three farmers have officially entered into a cooperation agreement and committed to participating in this project for a duration of seven years. The primary objective of this pilot initiative is to encourage the sequestration of CO2 in the soil, promoting sustainability within the farming community. Lely is actively contributing to the pursuit of a more sustainable future for the agricultural sector, with the ultimate goal of reducing the environmental impact of farming practices. On carbon sequestration Lely collaborates, among others, with ZLTO.
