Overview

The row crop harvesting project targeted three levels of automation: “cruise control,” “teach/playback” and full autonomy.

A "cruise control” feature to automatically steer, drive and control the harvesting header, thereby allowing allow the operator to focus on other in-cab controls and harvest conditions.


A GPS-based "teach/playback” system to enable the harvester to "learn” a field and then repeat a given path, thereby allowing one operator to remotely control several harvesters.


A fully autonomous harvester using vision perception to completely harvest a field with no human supervision.
