Automatic guidance of a farm tractor along curved paths, using a unique CP-DGPS

Abstract : Precision agriculture involves very accurate farm vehicle control along recorded paths, which are not necessarily straight lines. In this paper, we investigate the possibility of achieving this task with a CP-DGPS as the unique sensor. The vehicle heading is derived according to a Kalman state reconstructor, and a nonlin-ear velocity independent control law is designed, relying on chained systems properties. Field experiments, demonstrating the capabilities of our guidance system, are reported and discussed.
