Abstract

Contemporary automatic guidance research is mainly focused on using expensive real-time kinematic GPS or carrier phase differential GPS. In this paper, an approach for guiding a vehicle using a Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) based position sensor as the only external posture sensor is highlighted. The guidance system consists of the DGPS-based sensor, a wheel angle sensor (potentiometer), and a pulse-width-modulated electrohydraulic valve. The platform of this research is a John Deere model 6210 agricultural tractor. Results are presented to show system performance.
