Preliminary report on optimized fleet management to reduce energy consumption and costs-Rep.2: Assessment of Potential Savings"

A assessment of the energy and cost savings that could be achieved when farming operations are performed by a fleet of machines.

Year of Publication2010

This report presents an assessment of the energy and cost savings that could be achieved when farming operations (e.g., fertilising, grain harvesting) are performed by many machines (fleet) operated in an optimal way, as opposed to the standard operation of current agricultural practice. The assessment will be based on available state of the art algorithms which model, optimise and simulate the execution of agricultural operations at the farm level.
