Tractor Auto Steer System Used in Precision Agriculture

Apr 06/2022

FJDynamics tractor auto steer gps guidance system has been widely used in precision agriculture. Equipped with GNSS and RTK technology , it provides 2.5cm accuracy precise guidance for tractors. The high accuracy of tractor auto steer makes farming easier and more efficient.

Auto Steer System Used in Precision Agriculture

Precision Agriculture

What is precision agriculture?

Precision agriculture is an agricultural management strategy. It is a science that uses information analytic tools to improve crop yields and assist farmers in management decisions.

Based on observation and measurement, It collects temporal, spatial and individual information. By processing and analyzing information, it can support agricultural management decision-making. Ultimately improve resource efficiency, productivity, production quality profitability, and sustainability of agricultural production.

At a technical level, precision agriculture is also called GPS farming or variable speed farming.

What is precision agriculture for?

The ultimate goal: Produce more with fewer resources, while maintaining superior quality standards. It can divide into two parts.

  • For agriculturalists.
    It can optimize workflows and resources. Thus reducing consumption and waste and increasing land productivity. Management makes processes faster and more efficient, reducing production costs. This results in higher earnings and socio-economic status for agricultural workers.

  • For the environment.
    More rational use of resource, less waste and emission of fertilizers and herbicides. Reduces soil compaction, prevents soil degradation. Precision agriculture keeps the land in a sustainable state.

Benefits of Auto Steer in Precision Agriculture

Automatic steering makes agricultural work easy, and the driver hardly has to do anything to get the tractor to do the job with great precision. It is a programmed machine that does the job precisely as expected, avoiding human errors. In summary it has the following benefits.

1. Reduce driver fatigue

Driving seeders, harvesters, sprayers, etc. all day long is a very tiring task for the driver. The driver needs to stay awake at all times, to ensure that the tractor does not go off course. In a large piece of farmland, doing repetitive operations can easily make the driver feel tired . Tractor auto steer helps the driver to do the energy-intensive work of monitoring and controlling the direction, and the driver can simply stare at the screen to have a clear view of the current operation.

2. Reduce operating cost

Auto steer avoids row overlap and keeps the tractor working accurately. This avoids the waste of seeds and fertilizers and reduces the cost of seeds, fertilizers and other materials. Also the cost on labor is greatly reduced as rework is avoided and the operation is accelerated.

3. Improve production quality and quantity

By avoiding excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides in overlapping areas, each plant can get fertilizers and pesticides in the planned amount, so that the plants are in good health to the maximum extent and the quality and quantity of production are improved.

How FJD Auto Steer Kit Used in Precision Agriculture? 

1. GNSS+RTK high accuracy guidance

FJD Auto steer for tractor use GNSS and rtk to achieve 2.5cm accuracy

Satellite positioning and steering systems for tractors. These are among the best-known technologies in precision agriculture. These systems can increase efficiency and productivity.

FJD tractor auto steer kit is a high accuracy guidance and auto steering system, equipped with GNSS+RTK. Move from point A to point B with very high straight accuracy, thus saving time and fuel. Allows farmers to plant crops in a more efficient way.

With GPS or GNSS, it is possible to position the operating agricultural machinery. This prevents overlapping or bypassing in fertilization. Bypassed areas may experience decreased yield or pathogen attack. And overlapping areas Increases the consumption and costs.

2. Electric steering wheel + wheel angle sensor for precise steering

FJDynamics Auto Steer Kit, equipped with electric wheel and wheel angle sensor, to achieving precise steering. This reduces the workload of driving the tractor, so the operator is free to focus on other aspects of the job

3. ISOBUS protocol - A common language for precision agricultural services

ISOBUS protocol - A common language for precision agricultural services

Various agriculture machines can communicate with each other. This is important in take full advantage Of precision farming. ISOBUS is a protocol to solve this problem. ISOBUS is a communication protocol for the agriculture industry. It achieves communication between tractors, software and devices, even from different manufacturers.

FJDynamics Auto Steer Kit uses the ISOBUS protocol. Makes it compatible with a wide range of agricultural equipment. This kit can control all ISOBUS certified equipment. And integrates these equipment with the precision steering system. Achieving control of all equipment through a terminal control display in the tractor cab.

Features in Development

Automatic tractor driving by remote control. Remote control of the tractor for agricultural operations, making agricultural production easier!
