With BoomSight the field is scanned and recorded over the whole working width by means of a sensor system. Thus it is possible to adjust the boom in advance in such a way that the deviation is as low as possible. The Boom does not need to react anymore because it can now act immediately. For this purpose a laser scanner is installed on the roof of the tractor or sprayers cab which scans a range of approx. 20 m to the left and to the right, and approx. 15 m to the front. Based on the measured data a surface model is created that reflects the terrain including gaps, tramlines, or irregularities in the crop population or of the terrain. On the basis of this information the middle part of the boom, the inclination degree of the slope compensation and maybe the angle between the wings are adjusted according to the surface model. The measured values of the ultra-sonic sensors are still used for regulation and control purposes. BoomSight will be available for the whole HORSCH plant protection range.
