Collector / drones


On wide golf courses, the golf balls recycling rate are limited by terrain. The Collector is a drone with picking machine. The Roller-style ball picker can collect golf balls fast and efficiently.

Collector will detect the location of the ball automatically and collect the ball with rolling. While collecting, the machine will roll the golf ball into designate storage space, then it will bring the balls back.

By using collector, it can increase the recycling rate and economize manpower and material resource.
