At Raven, we are committed to innovation and continuous improvement. Yuri Sneyders, Staff Research Engineer; Jonathan Mathews, Software Engineer; David Rislov, Staff Software Engineer; and Robert Haar, Engineering Team Lead, did an excellent job of improving an innovative product, making our VSN™ system easy to use for customers by developing efficient algorithms. Congratulations, team, for winning the September Team Member Spotlight!

Raven is once again expanding its class-leading product line to help ag retailers and growers boost their efficiency and profits. The new VSN™ visual guidance system uses state-of-the-art image sensor and processing technologies to deliver quick response and better control. VSN maintains row guidance at industry-required spraying speeds — from the time when crops are just a few inches post-emerge up to a nearly full canopy — without the use of mechanical feelers.

Raven has expanded its logistics and control offering to help ag retailers find more efficiency, and profitability, in their custom application operations. Featuring the integrated suite of AgSync™, Slingshot® and the Viper® 4+ software and hardware; Raven’s Connected Workflow™ allows users to seamlessly and wirelessly connect their office to the field and back again.

Read about their outstanding efforts, ensuring that the equipment was running smoothly and properly for our customers.
