TechTour: Culti Cam system offers automatic cultivator positioning in row crops


In another move towards automation, Claas has unveiled a system for automatic steering of cultivators in row crops.

The Culti Cam uses a high-resolution camera to detect rows, and then adjusts the position of the implement, centring it between rows, independent from the tractor’s steering.

Using colour and 3D surface information, Claas says the camera software analyzes the leaf structure of the crop to identify crop rows, even in windy conditions and weed-infested areas.

The company says the system enables higher speeds, increased accuracy and lower operator fatigue than when relying on human judgement.

Jointly developed with Einböck, Hatzenbichler, Carre SAS and Bednar FMT, the Culti Cam won a silver Innovation Award from the German Agricultural Society (DLG) at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany.

Peter Jürschik of Claas joined RealAgriculture’s Kelvin Heppner at Agritechnica to discuss the new Culti Cam system:
