automated guidance system / GPS / satellite / GLONASS
GPS, satellite, GLONASS
New Holland offers a range of autoguidance solutions to meet your needs, from entry-level manual guidance, via assisted guidance right through to top of the range fully integrated autoguidance which effectively manages the machine for you. These solutions can be matched to a range of correction signals, from sub 20cm right down to sub 2.5cm absolute accuracy depending on your needs. You might be thinking what about my implement? Well, New Holland offers solutions for its entire range of tractor, harvesting, and crop management equipment, including all implements!
WHAT LEVEL OF PRECISION DO YOU NEED?
New Holland autoguidance solutions are compatible with a full range of guidance correction signals so that you can choose the exact level of precision that your operation requires. GPS and GLONASS correction signals are transmitted via a network of satellites that orbit the Earth and land based receivers can then determine their own position in relation to these signals. However, this alone is not accurate enough for agriculture, therefore a correction signal must also be used. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space based satellite navigation system and is part of a larger system called the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). GNSS is a term used for all satellite constellation systems used to provide positioning data. Currently GNSS only covers GPS and GLONASS systems. GLONASS is similar to GPS and both are available worldwide. When auto guidance receivers track both GPS and GLONASS signals together, the number of 'visible' satellites is greatly increased which reduces the risk of losing satellite coverage for increased uptime.
