Communication Between Precision Agriculture Devices with an Emphasis on Changes and Compatibility Issues : Communication Between Precision Agriculture Devices with an Emphasis on Changes and Compatibility Issues Kent Shannon Natural Resource Engineer University of Missouri Extension Boone County Need to ask some questions first : Need to ask some questions first What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? GPS Guidance Yield Mapping Equipment control Variable rate application Data Collection Will custom application be part of using precision ag technology? Will services be provided? Will producer be part of using precision ag technology? Need to ask some questions first : Need to ask some questions first What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? GPS Guidance Yield Mapping Equipment control Variable rate application Data Collection Which technologies are being or potentially used in combination or by themselves? Compatibility Issues - Begins With : Compatibility Issues - Begins With Model / Year and Make of Equipment Why is this an issue? Factory installed After market Communication Issues??? : Communication Issues??? Slide 11: Possible advantage AGCO has over others is the ability to log various other information related to machinery management Need to ask some questions first : Need to ask some questions first What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? GPS Guidance Yield Mapping Equipment control Variable rate application Data Collection What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? : What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? GPS Guidance Aided (Lightbar) Assisted Auto Implement What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? : What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? GPS Guidance Aided (Lightbar) ISSUE: Is GPS data needed for another application? If so will the GPS lightbar transmit data is the proper protocol, i.e. NMEA What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? : What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? GPS Guidance Assisted ISSUE: Is GPS data needed for another application? If so will the GPS lightbar transmit data is the proper protocol, i.e. NMEA Communication, Flexibility, Economics Compared to GPS Auto Guidance What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? : What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? GPS Guidance Auto Communication, Flexibility, Economics Compared to GPS Auto Guidance Auto-Guide Option : Auto-Guide Option Seems to provide some available options specifically provides NMEA output for connecting various other precision ag equipment such as an AgLeader Insight display AFS ACCUGUIDETM Option : AFS ACCUGUIDETM Option NMEA output could be an issue. There are a few instances if using Omnistar Correction Signals XP/HP or RTK problems might exist. The issue is how NMEA data is transmitted. Review the GGA string contains information regarding GPS 1 is for standard GPS 2 is for WAAS or Omnistar VBS Beacon etc 3 Don't remember off the top of my head 4 RTK Fixed 5 RTK Float 4 & 5 are also used by Omnistar XP/HP Some monitors or mapping software etc don't account for anything higher than 2 so will possibly report no DGPS when using Omnistar XP/HP or RTK. GreenStar 2 System, GS2 2600 Display : GreenStar 2 System, GS2 2600 Display GREENSTAR™ AUTOTRAC Option : GREENSTAR™ AUTOTRAC Option NMEA output could be an issue. Requires special cabling. NMEA input to the GS2 display can also be an issue. There are a few instances if using Omnistar Correction Signals XP/HP or RTK problems might exist. The issue is how NMEA data is transmitted.

Equipment control Boom height What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? : What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? Variable rate application (Fertilizer) Map-based Sensor-based Dry Liquid Anhydrous ammonia Equipment - Evaluation : Equipment - Evaluation Are there yield monitoring systems being used? If so can I use any components of the yield monitor for the other lines of equipment Older Equipment - Evaluation : Older Equipment - Evaluation Probably two scenarios related to yield monitor, factory-installed or after-market. AGCO Equipment : AGCO Equipment Fieldstar II – GTA Console II Does have some utility. Dickey John is utilizing this console Equipment is pre-wired utilizing ISOBUS Case IH Equipment : Case IH Equipment AFS Pro 600 Monitor and ISOBUS The AFS Field Performer can be equipped in your new Case IH Puma, Magnum, Steiger, and QUADTRAC tractors and Axial-Flow 7010 & 8010 combines. It allows the operator to record and log fuel usage, individual operator performance, acres per hour, and engine efficiencies.

Data collection Recordkeeping Field Boundaries Soil Sampling ISSUE: Can I collect the necessary information I need? If not, how do I accomplish this? Office (Desktop) Software – Could Also Lead to Issues : Office (Desktop) Software – Could Also Lead to Issues Can I process all formats of data? Can I create all formats of data? GOAL: Maximize these two questions with the least amount of software Summary : Summary Communication Issues Better than when we started (mid 90’s) More flexibility Equipment manufacturer still want control, i.e. own protected communication The addition of sensor technology has added complexity to the issue Slide 48: Autonomous Vehicle Platooning Slide 49: Vehicle Communication GPS Input Vehicle Control Output
