WG Technical Support Agromechatronics

Adapted and self-developed mechatronic components are always needed to solve agricultural engineering problems. The in-house development of these systems is necessary, because often market-available solutions cannot be adapted to agricultural research.

Our work covers a broad spectrum from mechanical construction of partly complete attachment systems for tractors and other agricultural vehicles to complex trailer platforms for sensors and actuators and individual mounting systems for sensors and actuators directly on the vehicle.

We develop our own new electronic sensors as well as new combinations of existing sensors. The sensors are used for the direct control of mechatronic machinery as well as for data acquisition before, during or after fieldwork.

For the in-house engineered sensors, we develop and program software for the embedded systems, microcomputers and PC systems with user interfaces.

In close cooperation with the scientists we apply existing, extended and new algorithms using self-developed software and various software packages. In this way, we convert data into information that generates new insights for agricultural research.
