GUSS Automation’s autonomous sprayers have brought advanced technology and farming together to change the direction of the agriculture industry. With GUSS, farmers are now able to increase efficiency and precision as well as keep their crews safer than ever before.
GUSS uses a combination of GPS, LiDAR and the latest technology to autonomously roll through orchards and vineyards spraying with precision and efficiency row after row. A single operator can monitor up to eight GUSS machines from his/her vehicle while the nurse trucks supply the spray product when GUSS signals for a refill.
GUSS also includes the GUSS Defender™ vest for increased safety. GUSS Defender™ vest is patent pending technology and utilizes a small wireless transmitter that automatically pauses the autonomous machine when the person wearing the Defender™ vest is detected. GUSS will not resume operation until the individual is clear of the area surrounding the vehicle creating a safer environment for the crew members.
GUSS Automation continues to develop autonomous technology with plans for additional autonomous agriculture equipment. With the ever-increasing cost of spray products and labor, autonomous spraying is an impressive tool for increasing productivity and improving the overall operation for farmers and growers worldwide.
