Ro­botic trac­tors get­ting closer

Australian Farmers & Dealers Journal - - News Briefs -

HI­TACHI Zosen Cor­po­ra­tion, Hi­tachi and Yan­mar have been com­mis­sioned to con­duct a study on the ef­fec­tive use over­seas of ad­vanced po­si­tion­ing sig­nals from Ja­pan's QuasiZenith Satel­lite Sys­tem (QZSS). The study seeks to ver­ify ad­vanced po­si­tion­ing sig­nals trans­mit­ted from the QZSS can be used in pre­ci­sion farm­ing in Aus­tralia. Specif­i­cally, demon­stra­tion tests will be con­ducted us­ing the ad­vanced po­si­tion­ing sig­nals to con­trol a self-steer­ing ro­botic trac­tor and per­form ac­tual farm work in a paddy field.
