The vision of the project was to develop safety systems that permit agricultural machines to autonomously handle all significant physical hazards in the field.
Today’s machine users are demanding reduced requirements for surveillance as well as maximum safety for humans and animals. This requires a significant improvement in all aspects of autonomous safety including: detailed models of possible risks encountered in the field, more advanced analyses of data from sensors, more advanced fusion of data from various sensors and more stable and safe behavior based on knowledge obtained from the sensors.
The business potential for the commercial partners was to reduce the workload of the farmers and at the same time reduce the harm done to animals in the fields. This means both cost reduction and wildlife preservation.
The project is financed by Innovation Fund Denmark.
