NIKO Maschinenbau and Robot Makers GmbH present forward-looking technology

In the course of Intervitis, Interfructa, Hortitechnica, our partner NIKO Maschinenbau is presenting a vineyard crawler, which is able to complete several tasks independently. In contrast to other systems on the market, the machine doesn’t use the high-precision RTK-GPS. Most of the data used for navigation is provided by the “eyes” of the vehicle, so-called ambient environmental sensors. In addition to independently running the rows in wine and fruit cultivation, the vehicle is also able to turn independently at the row exit and enter the next row. This allows complete plantations to be processed autonomously.
