New camera functions in Steketee hoeing machines

LEMKEN Steketee ECWeeder CamerasSteketee hoeing machines can now be used precisely and efficiently for mechanical weed control

New functions improve control and thus row detection in machines guided by a second camera.

In these modern hoeing machines, the new Combi Cam Mode, which is automatically activated at the factory, generates a superimposed image from both cameras. As a result, the system works from twice as much visual information, which ensures even more precise row detection and offers great advantages, especially in heterogeneous, patchy crops. This provides noticeable relief to drivers, as manual switching between the two cameras is no longer necessary. Of course, it is still possible to select only one camera with a good view, for example if the other camera is outside the field boundary. 

Alternatively, the AutoSwitch Cam Mode can be activated via the settings. In this mode, the machine is automatically controlled via the camera that receives the best image. The system switches as soon as the image quality falls below a set threshold. This ensures consistently precise row guidance until the next turning operation. 

The Combi Cam and AutoSwitch Cam functions are also available for existing LEMKEN Steketee hoeing machines via a software update.
