Radar sensor for reliable obstacle detection & positioning of mobile robots – e. g. in farming.

Whether in agriculture, logistics or production: More and more mobile robots are being used to automate dangerous, strenuous or repetitive tasks. The positioning of mobile robots in demanding conditions with poor visibility, dust, smoke, fog, rain or vibrations requires particularly robust sensor solutions.

With the powerful OndoSense radar sensors, the position of mobile robots and AGVs can be reliably determined even in the most adverse environments. The range of applications ranges from cleaning tasks with dust, mud and water vapor (e. g. barn or manure robots), working environments with hazardous substances or fire to spraying tasks with cement and dyes. With our productive radar solution, the reliable positioning, obstacle detection and collision avoidance of mobile robots is always ensured. Trust in our radar technology for the optimal control of your mobile robots for barn cleaning in farming or other demanding environments!

Positioning of mobile robots for barn cleaning - with radar

Your added value with radar


Prevent downtime, save costs.

  • Our radar solution will help you prevent collision-related downtime of your mobile robots, saving costs.
  • Minimal maintenance: Radar has no moving parts, works contactless and requires almost no cleaning.


Fast, efficient robot deployments.

  • Our radar enables more productivity through the quick positioning of mobile robots (e. g. barn robots).
  • The radar sensor's high measurement rate detects obstacles even when objects move quickly.


Safe positioning of mobile robots.

  • Our radar is weather-independent and also measures in heavy dust, rain, fog or harsh lighting conditions.
  • Radar measurements are not affected by wind or vibrations - unlike ultrasonic sensors.
