Auto Guidance Systems. By Adam Wood Assisted Steering Systems. Auto steering uses Global Positioning System (GPS) to guide the sprayer through the field. Electro hydraulic steering is required. This can be factory installed or bought as an aftermarket ad-on. Here's How Auto Steering Works. Set the first pass (Track 0) from the In cab display. The system will "draw" lines that are parallel to Track 0. Simply press a button on your tractor's Command Arm, and AutoTrac will steer your tractor down these parallel lines. Once you are at the end of the row simply turn the tractor around press the Resume switch on the tractor’s Command Arm and let go of the wheel. Accuracy Within Each System. AutoTrac Recommended Application Accuracy Option AutoTrac SF1 Tillage, Pull-Behind Sprayer, Air Seeding +/- 13-in. AutoTrac Planting, Self-Propelled Sprayer, Broad-Acre +/- 4-in. SF2 Harvesting AutoTrac RTK Bedding, Strip Till, Drip Tape Sub-Inch Irrigation Repeatability Repeatable Benefits of Auto Steering. Reduce Operator Fatigue More comfortable working hours Increased awareness of machine functions Optimize Machine Efficiency Operate at faster field speeds Reduce per acre fuel consumption Reduce overlap on implements and sprayers Increase Yield Cover more acres with fewer hours of operation Centralize compaction due to planned traffic patterns on fields More accurate placement of agronomic inputs such as fertilizer and herbicides Disadvantages of Auto Steering.
