Agricultural industry has to optimize volume and quality and to look for a resource- friendly use of agricultural operating materials. Sensors to measure and methods of determining ingredients and crop quality have become indispensable.
Optical measurement equipment is increasingly used directly on the agricultural machine, where it can record plant parameters to control operations such as an optimized fertilizer application rate. The harsh environment requires of the mobile measurement equipment to be efficient and reliable as well as robust and durable to a variety of environmental conditions such as heat, cold, moisture, vibrations or shocks.
