Opzione Follow me

Follow me is the part of the Slopehelper's autonomous system. Its simple purpose is for the vehicle to follow the operator autonomously wherever it moves, of course keeping a constant safety distance.

A lot of applications required an agricultural machine following by operator. Our follow me technology is very robust and at the same time simple to use. Slopehelper has integration of follow me features at all operation levels. Follow me keep a distance and the vehicle follows the operator who has it the remote US beacon wherever he goes. Very useful and practical option especially in the harvest season, and is the most modern and practical solution that significantly facilitates the whole harvesting process. In combination with the Slopehelper base platform, frontal loader and follow me option, you are getting a whole system which turns the harvesting process into an amazing experience and enjoying the noble work.
