AUTONOMOUS DRIVING MODES

1
Autonomous driving along crop edges
The combine harvester is positioned along the edge. Once the system reports that it is ready to take control, the driver launches self-driving mode by pressing a button.
2
Autonomous driving along windrows
To harvest crops along a windrow, the combine harvester must be positioned next to the outermost harvested area. Once the system reports that it is ready to take control, the driver can activate the ADS.
3
Autonomous driving along crop rows
The combine is positioned next to a crop row. Once the system detects this and reports that it is ready to take control, the driver activates the ADS.
HARVESTING MODES

Imagine a combine that doesn’t blindly follow a virtual line across a field but switches to unharvested areas, changes its route autonomously, and sends new information to other machines.

It can harvest any crop in any configuration, by following the crop edge, a windrow, or a crop row.

No complex settings required: Agro Pilot automatically detects unharvested areas, plots a route accordingly, and selects an appropriate harvesting mode.

An obstacle in the way?

The combine stops, makes a detour, or requests assistance from the operator. This protects the machinery and people’s health, as well as saving time and money.

FAQ
How long does it take to install the system?

The Agro Pilot system takes only a day or two to install and launch on any grain harvester – no wasting time on configuration and maintenance.

Do field maps require updating after the installation?

The system software can be configured and updated through the user application. Field maps do not require updating or charting.

How many harvesting days can the system help me save?

It depends on the size of your field and the number of combines. In our practice, an average enterprise can save from two to four days per season.

Which combine harvesters is Cognitive Agro Pilot compatible with?

As of June 1, 2020, Cognitive Agro Pilot is compatible with all types of grain harvesters. We plan to introduce the suite for other crops in the spring of 2021.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COGNITIVE AGRO PILOT AND PARALLEL DRIVING SYSTEMS

In a nutshell, parallel driving means navigating in the dark. For such a system to operate, it needs a steady GPS signal and a subscription to RTK corrections (about $70 a month). Before starting, a parallel driving system takes 10 to 15 minutes to “warm up” and latch onto the signal. When the combine is in motion, the stability of the navigation signal varies. This affects the accuracy of navigation, which can vary from 5 cm to 50 cm. In the course of harvesting, such fluctuations result in narrow strips of unharvested crops, which you have to either leave in the field or to go back to harvest at the cost of using extra fuel. However human operators remain the “eyes” of a system like this, and all obstacles remain their responsibility.

By contrast, Cognitive Agro Pilot “sees” and “understands” its surroundings in real time: the crop edge, a windrow, a crop row, or any obstacles ahead. As a result, the driving is done in the same way as a human operator does it, with consideration to the real location of objects along the route. The operator, therefore, can focus on the harvester.
