Title
(EN) AUTONOMOUS GROUND SURFACE TREATMENT SYSTEM AND METHOD OF OPERATION OF SUCH A SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈMES, VÉHICULES AUTONOMES DE TRAITEMENT DE SURFACE DE SOL ET PROCÉDÉS
Abstract
(EN)
An autonomous ground maintenance system comprising a vehicle 100 comprising a chassis supported upon a ground surface by ground support members 106, a container 110 supported by the chassis, the container defining a discharge outlet 111 operable to disperse treating material held within the container 110 to a target area of the ground surface, a gate 126 adapted to selectively open and close the discharge outlet, a sensor 128 adapted to identify the target area, and an electronic controller 120 supported by the chassis, the controller being in communication with the sensor and the gate, wherein the controller is adapted to position the chassis at a location proximate the target area such that the discharge outlet is capable of delivering the treating material to the target area and energize the gate to open the discharge outlet.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un véhicule et des systèmes de traitement de surface de sol et des procédés y faisant appel. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le véhicule peut être adapté pour identifier de manière autonome ou semi-autonome et éventuellement traiter des zones cibles telles que des mottes sur des surfaces de gazon. Le véhicule peut identifier la zone cible par l'intermédiaire de capteurs embarqués ou distants et traiter de manière autonome la zone cible en apportant un matériau de traitement tel qu'un remplissage, une graine, une matière particulaire et des liquides.
