Protecting combine harvesters from hard objects hidden in biomass

Challenge


NineSigma posted a challenge to come up with ways to detect the presence of hard objects in biomass so as to protect the machinery inside combine harvesters.

Solution


NovaSyst proposed a biomass-penetrating imaging radar that can detect hard objects as small as 4 cm in front of the combine harvester in real time, thus protecting the harvester’s equipment.

Results


By addressing a customer’s concern, the seeker gained a new competitive advantage.
