AN INTRODUCTION TO GPS

WHAT IS GPS?

The GPS (Global Positioning System) operated by the U.S department of Defence and GLONASS operated by the Russian Federation are a space-based navigation system formed from a network of satellites which determine the position of a vehicle using signals from the 32 satellites that circle the earth. These satellites travel in known orbits that allow a land based receiver to determine its own position in relation to each satellite from which it receives a signal.

The GPS antenna fitted to the machine receives continuous signals from the GPS satellites. Ground based GPS receivers, at known locations across the country, receive the same signals. As their absolute location is known, they can calculate the real time position and send a position correction signal. Geostationary satellites then return the correction signal to the GPS receiver on the vehicle, and the correction can be applied to the received position.

The signals generated by GPS alone are not accurate enough for use in agriculture. Therefore, corrections must be made to GPS signals to improve their accuracy. With these correction signals we refer to the system as DGPS (Differential Global Positioning System).

There are two main DGPS correction services available today:

SBAS

The GPS (Global Positioning System) operated by the U.S department of Defence and GLONASS operated by the SBAS-Satellite Based Augmentation System,communicate difference via geostationary satellite.

RTK

Real Time Kinematics, communicate difference directly to the vehicle via short wave radio from a local base station.

HOW ACCURATE IS GPS?

An uncorrected GPS or GLONASS signal gives you position accuracy between 5 to 10 meters. This is more than adequate for car navigation systems, but not accurate enough for vehicle guidance in agricultural applications, where we need Pass-to-Pass and Year-to-Year accuracy and repeatability.

Pass-to-Pass accuracy measures the relative accuracy over a 15 minute interval. This is usually thought of as skip/ overlap from one pass to the next when driving swaths. A New Holland receiver with pass-to-pass accuracy of +/-2.5 cm means you get less than +/-2.5 cm skip or overlap, 95% of the time.

Year-to-Year accuracy is the measure of repeatable accuracy which means that you can drive the same rows a day, week, month, or year later. So, +/- 2.5 cm year-to-year accuracy means you can drive the same rows next year within +/- 2.5 cm of this year’s rows, 95% of the time.

MAXIMISE YIELDS, CONTROL INPUT

COSTS + OPTIMISE PROFITS

WHY GPS GUIDANCE? BENEFITS OF VEHICLE GUIDANCE

GIVE YOUR BUSINESS A COMPLETE AND FLEXIBLE GPS SOLUTION

From the enhanced productivity of lightbar guidance, to the pinpoint accuracy of fully integrated guidance, and the valuable analysis of yield data, our Precision Land Management offering will help maximise yields, control input costs and optimise profits.

REDUCE OPERATIONAL COSTS

The primary purpose of New Holland’s Precision Land Management is to save fuel and input costs by ensuring parallel passes when working either in straight lines, curves, pivots or on undulating ground minimising skips and overlaps.

IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY, EVEN IN DUSTY CONDITIONS

When planting, spraying, cultivating or harvesting in difficult weather conditions or at night, the operator can focus on his task without any risk of overlap or joining rows while driving faster.

INCREASE OPERATOR’S COMFORT

Operators using guidance solutions often report “being less fatigued and stressed” as one of the fundamental advantages of precision farming, leading to increased work rates and efficiency.

CONTROLLED TRAFFIC FARMING PRACTICES

With RTK enabled New Holland guidance systems the practice of Controlled Traffic Farming can be adopted, leading to a significant reduction in field compaction improving overall yields.

CHOOSE A SIMPLE AND VERSATILE SOLUTION

For your new purchases of New Holland Machines, we offer factory installed fully integrated guidance solutions.

For all makes and models of equipment of your existing fleet, we provide a full range of leading aftermarket solutions for GPS-based guidance, from entry-level to high end.

Regardless of your farm operation, the brands of your machines and your budget, this precision farming brochure will help you determine which system is right for you.

THE COMPLETE, FLEXIBLE GPS SYSTEM

Four Levels of Accuracy

1.Autonomous with OnPath filter

For Autonomous systems only, utilising mathematical filters to increase the system accuracy. The OnPath filter provides +/-30- 45cm pass to pass accuracy without the use of a correction signal.

2.OmniSTAR VBS (Single Frequency Correction)

The vehicle with a DGPS antenna receives signals from the GPS satellite constellation.

The OmniSTAR® services, which have a number of ground based GPS receivers spread across the area for which they deliver a correction, receive the same GPS messages as the vehicle. They are able to calculate the real time position error and send this as a message to control stations, which then upload the message to a geostationary satellite. The geostationary satellite receives the correction message, and re-transmits it as a single frequency signal back to the receiver on the vehicle.

3.Differential GPS with OmniSTAR® (Dual Frequency Correction)

Process as per OmniSTAR VBS.

On this higher accuracy system, the geostationary satellite, transmits the correction message as a dual frequency signal back to the receiver on the vehicle.

4.RTK (Real Time Kinematic)

This is a highly precise technology that results in +/-2.5 cm year-to-year accuracy.

This accuracy can be achieved with two communication technologies, depending upon your needs in terms of working area coverage:

RTK (Radio transmission)

RTK uses a local ground based station which receives the same position data as the mobile unit. By comparing the received position to its known actual position, the real time error can be calculated. This error is then transmitted via short wave radio to the mobile unit.

Radio repeaters can be positioned to fill in any areas of signal loss from the base station. Signal loss could be caused by rugged terrain or thick vegetation.

ASSISTED GUIDANCE

ASSISTED GUIDANCE – EZ-STEER™

Enhance your guidance package by upgrading to the EZ-Steer® assisted steering system, which delivers an excellent hands free solution.

EZ-Steer® is the world’s simplest portable hands-free farming system for all vehicle models, old and new.

The EZ-Steer® system turns the steering wheel for you by combining a friction wheel and a motor thanks to a DGPS guidance signal from the EZ-Guide® 250, FM-750™ or FM-1000™ displays.

While the EZ-Steer® keeps you on line on undulating land, ditches, waterways and terraces, you can focus on many different tasks, such as sprayer or planter performance, improving job quality and crop yields while reducing stress.

Position without terrain compensation

EZ-Steer® motor

The EZ-Steer® motor receives electrical signals from the EZ-Steer® controller and converts them to precise commands that the vehicle’s steering system uses to keep the vehicle on track.

You can resume the control of your machine at anytime by turning the steering wheel.

EZ-STEER® CONTROLLER

Using data from the GPS receiver, the EZ-Steer® controller sends precise instructions to the steering wheel motor. T2™ technology continually corrects for roll and yaw by using 4-axis solid state inertial sensors to give you a true on-ground position.

GPS receiver

T2™ terrain compensation technology

Roll angle

Position corrected by T2TM technology

Terrain compensation technology calculates the difference between the DGPS antenna’s location and the desired “working position” of the vehicle’s centre point on the ground. No matter what angle the vehicle may be tilting, it improves accuracy when driving on flat ground with rough terrain and accuracy on slopes, hills and when driving over terraces, ditches and waterways.
