The details are limited, but what we do know is that John Deere’s 3D camera system monitors the immediate periphery of a machine; displaying up to six different types of views to enhance operational safety of tractors and harvesting machinery. Developed jointly between John Deere’s Mannheim facility and Continental Automotive, the factory-installed technology processes digital data from a number of cameras to create a 360° panoramic view and complete image of the machine and its surrounding from various perspectives, including a bird’s eye view. We understand it is possible to import additional information into the system, including projected wheelmarks or the pivoting range of the machine’s rear end. The image is of a tractor, but we understand the launch, and the product range the system will ultimately be available, has still to be decided.
