"FJDynamics (FJD) will launch its Autosteering Kit in Europe in the second half of 2020."
FJDynamics Autosteering Kit uses satellite navigation to control the steering-wheel so that the vehicle can drive automatically in a straight line, and in countries where the legislations allow, the kit can automatically turn the vehicle around and shift gears. The system consists of an electrically-powered steering wheel, a control terminal and an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) and optionally a vision camera which provides deep learning-based lane and object recognition capability.
Positioning accuracy up to 2.5 cm
Using GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, and GALILEO) satellite signals, RTK technology for ground enhanced positioning, FJD Autosteering Kit allows vehicles to be positioned with an accuracy of up to 2.5cm and can automatically adjust the vehicles travel direction, with an accuracy up to 5cm, says FJD.
The system gives tractors and other machines capabilities to recognise objects and lanes. Millimeter-wavelength radar-based obstacle detection and avoidance can be added as an option in countries with a legal requirement. By acquiring real-time position and speed of the vehicle, the system can provide operation traces and speed curve charts, so farmers can obtain real-time operational data to optimise their operation.
FJD says GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is strictly followed so that the information remain inside the EU and will be accessible only to the farmer or otherwise under the permission of the farmer.
Suitable for various types of vehicles
According to FJDynamics, FJD Autosteering Kit is suitable for for various types of agricultural vehicles, farming and harvesting machinery on the market. It can be used for a variety of agricultural operations, such as ditching, harrowing, seeding, fertilising, spraying and harvesting.
FJDynamics Autosteering Kit is just one of several agricultural solutions FJDynamics provides to farmers. The company offers farmers all kinds of precision farming technologies, such as agri-robots to do the farming, smart sensors to monitor crops. With the help of smart sensors, all sorts of farming information can be collected and uploaded, which enables farmers to look into at any time. FJD says it can also provide farmers with a customised solution.
