Stress-free forage harvesting

Imagine how much easier things would be if the spout of your forage harvester was controlled automatically. As an operator you could relax while ensuring optimal fill and avoiding any crop spillage. You could fully concentrate on general machine operation and settings for optimum overall performance.    

Rear-unload

Rear-unload

John Deere Active Fill Control utilises a stereo camera to control the rotation and flap position of the spout automatically. The system can actively track transport vehicles and aim the crop from the best position to execute a desired fill strategy. It automatically fills trailers to maximum capacity while allowing the operator to focus on productivity-related tasks such as machine optimisation. Active fill control can also adjust spout positioning automatically in rear-unload conditions when e.g. opening a new field.

Intelligent filling for higher productivity

Intelligent filling for higher productivity

AFC uses camera based technology to reduce stress, fatigue and spillage and increase productivity.

  • Once AFC is engaged, it detects the edges of the trailer next to the SPFH.
  • AFC then senses the fill level of the trailer.
  • A fill strategy is determined to enable an even fill of the trailer. Abb. Bild – something similar to the picture from AFC PowerPoint under ‘Easy Monitoring’, without the numbers.
  • Thanks to LED spout lights, this can be achieved under all conditions, from darkness to dust, rain or shading.
