    John Deere Machine Sync

    Overview

    Coverage map and guidance line sharing

    MachineSync allows for coverage and guidance line sharing between machines working in the same field. Either via the John Deere Machine Communication Radio or now also via the JDLink MTG. This means that everyone working in the field can easily identify completed areas, while Section Control automatically avoids double application when spraying, fertilizing or seeding. Shared guidance lines ensure that passes of all vehicles match exactly.

    Synchronisation of vehicle speed and steering

    The next level of MachineSync enables the synchronisation of speed and steering between combine and tractor with with grain cart or trailer during unloading in the field. This ensures even filling of the trailer without losses and reduces the risk of vehicle collision, especially in dusty conditions.

    Precision Guidance

    While waiting at the field edge, the tractor operator sees the exact location and grain tank levels levels of all in-field combines and tractor/ trailer units on his display.

    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.
