Clever turning software to feature at Agritechnica


Steering guidance software developed by Holmer for self-propelled harvesters will be presented at this year’s Agritechnica agricultural machinery trade fair.

The intelligent Smart Turn combines mechanical row guidance with a GNSS controlled headland turning system (global navigation satellite system), allowing the machine to turn automatically, as well as perform lifting maneuvers.

The software has been integrated into Reichhardt’s sugar beet harvester, the Terra Dos T4, and will be on the company’s stand at the Agritechnica show in November in Hannover, Germany.

The system’s power steering rack guidance is ISObus-compatible, as is a retrofit cable harness, a joystick and an electronic linkage control that will also be on display at the agricultural exhibition.

A Reichhardt spokesperson said, “The clear commitment to ISObus, which Reichhardt has already shown in 2009 with its ISObus compatible PSR steering system and which it has continuously pursued during the last years, will be presented at Agritechnica in an ISO product family both for the aftersales market as well as for OEM partners.”
