TechTour: Deutz-Fahr Wins Agritechnica Silver for Human-Detecting Safety Cameras

Deutz-Fahr Driver Extended Eye

Deutz-Fahr won a silver medal last fall in the Agritechnica Innovation Awards for its “Driver Extended Eye” technology.

The system consists of three cameras located behind the radiator grill on the tractor, showing blindspots in the tractor’s monitor. But it doesn’t stop there. The cameras can actually detect humans, and can intervene in the transmission to prevent already motionless tractors from moving should anyone be in front.

For moving tractors, the control system warns drivers when a person is detected in the immediate vicinity by showing a message on the monitor and sounding a warning tone.

The Driver Extended Eye was developed through the cooperation of agricultural machinery manufacturer Same Deutz-Fahr and automotive engineering developer BFFT.

In this episode of the Techtour, RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney catches up with Same Deutz-Fahr’s Bernd Kallfass. The duo cover some of the basics of the system, what tractors it will be available for, and what else it might have to offer in the years ahead.
