The Follow me feature is part of the Slopehelper's autonomous system. The purpose is for the vehicle to follow the user wherever it moves while keeping a safe distance at all times.
Many applications require supervision while dealing with agricultural machinery, but our revolutionary follow me technology changes that - besides, it is simple to use. The follow me feature, with the remote ultrasonic (US) beacon, can be set up on all operation levels and serves to keep the right distance between yourself and the vehicle wherever you go. Our modern solution proves to be particularly useful and practical in the harvest season, significantly aiding farmers in the process. In combination with the Slopehelper base platform, frontal loader, and follow me option, you are receiving a system that transforms harvesting into a great experience.
Ultra-compact US receiver US beacon on a quick-detachable shoulder mount
- robust and reliable follow me system
- compact ultrasonic beacon with long operation time
- just three compact ultrasonic receivers placed in a line with a small distance between them
- long operation distance
- very easy to use
- works in harsh weather conditions (rain, smog, during the night) and in the forest
- automatically keeps distance even when the vehicle is moving in a row
The follow me structure is used for remote operation of the Slopehelper.
The follow me system is based on the same control unit as the remote system. Three ultrasonic receivers are placed on the front side of the device and are connected to the RC unit. They provide the exact beacon positioning. The vehicle continuously scans the area in front of it and determines the current beacon position, movement direction and speed. Safe distance between the beacon and the engine is supported automatically within a range of walking speeds, which the user can adjust.
The beacon is a compact 180g ultrasonic transmitter, with a contactless charging option, which can be placed on your shoulder or in your pocket. The magnetic cradle with a built-in contactless charger is used to store the beacon onboard when not in use.
