A scientific literature review to assess what the research community has shown to be possible for planning and managing the operation of teams of conventional and semi‐autonomous farm machines.

Year of Publication2010

This report presents a scientific literature review to assess what the research community has shown to be possible for planning and managing the operation of teams of conventional and semi‐autonomous machines. Then, it presents the currently available commercial technology for planning and managing the operation of agricultural machine fleets. It proceeds by identifying the limitations of currently available commercial research‐prototype systems. Finally it offers recommendations for bridging the gaps between what is commercially available, and what constitutes state of the art in research, and develops a roadmap for what needs to be developed further.
