The O3M is a photoelectric 3D sensor which measures the distance between the sensor and the nearest surface point by point using the time-of-flight principle. The unit illuminates the scene with an external infrared light source and calculates the distance by means of the light reflected from the surface.
Thanks to its outstanding shock and vibration resistance, the sensor is suited for use in mobile machines. The O3M can be used on agricultural machinery for automatic swath detection and line guidance. It detects the volume flow of the harvested material and simultaneously provides a driver steer and speed recommendation to the vehicle control system. Installed on construction machines and municipal vehicles, the sensor can be used to prevent collision. Obstacles in the path are safely detected.
