KVH Industries has released a case study detailing how its DSP-3000 fiber optic gyro (FOG) was integrated into the autonomous navigation system for an orchard spraying system. Autonomous technology is ideal for orchard environments, where highly caustic chemicals are used, but highly precise navigation is required in such crowded conditions.
The case study covers:
- The challenges involved for unmanned sprayer vehicles operating in orchard environments
- Details of LSA Autonomy’s Basic Autonomous System Enclosure (BASE), which uses sensor fusion for precision navigation
- How the KVH DSP-3000 contributed to the autonomous sprayer solution
