Machine Sync

Features

  • Allow the combine operator to automatically control tractor speed and grain cart location, simplifying unloading and reducing spillage while unloading on-the-go.
  • Increase efficiency by co-ordinating the operation of several in-field machines at the same time.
  • Minimize overlapping and ensure that machines harvest with their full working width, thanks to coverage map and guidance line sharing.

    Operation

    Combine harvest automation

    Combine harvest automation

    Combine harvest automation creates a network between a fleet of tractors and combines allowing automation between the combine and the tractor. This facilitates on-the-go unloading by synchronizing tractor speed and direction of travel with the combine and provides greater ease of operation with improved efficiency, resulting in higher productivity during harvest. Combine harvest automation requires each machine to be equipped with a John Deere Machine Communication Radio (MCR).

    Harvest logistics

    Productivity gains are credited to tractor/grain cart operator’s ability to be in the right place at the right time with in-field logistics information. The GreenStar 3 (GS3) 2630 Display shows in-field logistics including grain tank-fill status, direction of travel, and location for each combine and tractor in the networked fleet. Harvest logistics requires each machine to be equipped with a John Deere MCR.

    Coverage map sharing

    Coverage map sharing

    Sharing coverage maps while seeding, spraying, or applying fertilizer allows any John Deere Section Control-enabled machine to trigger section control on/off based on another machine’s coverage. Coverage map sharing, combined with integrated section control, eliminates the opportunity for overlapping or leaving uncovered areas in the field, saving on input costs and increasing yield. When used in a harvest operation, sharing coverage maps allows a machine to better calculate harvested area by using another machine’s coverage to enable overlap control based on the shared coverage. Machines can share coverage using an MCR solution.

    Guidance line sharing

    Guidance line sharing

    Sharing guidance lines allows an AutoTrac-enabled machine to share guidance lines with another vehicle. Guidance line sharing functionality is limited to straight tracks only. Machines can share guidance lines using an MCR solution.
