Digital solutions for agricultural environment detection have arrived ensuring greater safety and more efficiency in the field. Cameras for aftermarket installation, fitted easily to agricultural machinery and giving flexibility in the locations they can be mounted, are seeing the end of an era in operator restricted vision.
Today, the Scottish precision farming pioneers SoilEssentials announce a new collaboration with Continental Automotive, now the UK’s first advanced dealer of Continentals ProViu 360 Surround View system allowing the driver a clear picture of surroundings and a bird’s eye view of his machine.
A total of four 1.3-megapixel cameras is used to deliver sharper images in HD resolution, displayed on a rugged IP67 10-inch HD touch display.
The two companies strongly believe that their innovations should have an affinity with their customers and are therefore created in a collaborative manner with them.
Rick Ruffles, Head of OE Sales at Continental Automotive enthuses about this new arrangement, “I am delighted to be working with SoilEssentials to bring our ProViu 360 system to what is an important market for us.” He went on to say, “I am pleased to be working with customers who understand the importance of safety and how technology can help the farming industry reduce accidents.”
Gregor Welsh, SoilEssentials General Manager is equally enthusiastic “SoilEssentials are delighted with the opportunity to bring the ProViu 360 HD surround view camera system to the marketplace, implementing a new level of advanced safety features to vehicles across industry types. The ProViu 360 HD surround view camera system delivers the highest product quality expected from Continental and it is a natural fit to add this product line to our portfolio.”

Always ready to challenge themselves, SoilEssentials, as agricultural innovators, thrive on the emergence of new technologies, developments, and collaborative opportunities to further enhance and push the boundaries in precision farming to bring exciting solutions to the marketplace.
