Topcon Precision AG, AGCO research autonomous vehicle equipment

AGCO and Topcon are working together to develop technology for robotic vehicles. An example of the technology, a LiDar device, was shown at the 2011 Ag Connect Expo.  Rhett Schildroth, Topcon, explains how Lidar creates a three-dimensional image surrounding a vehicle and will help a vehicle stop when an obstacle is encountered.
