Abstract: This paper describes a robust procedure for automatic guidance on a harvester.
The input of the automatic steering system is the relative position of a swath on the field.
A laser scanner is used to detect the swath. The position of the swath relative to the
machine is recalculated continuously. The translation and rotation of the machine are
taken into account to recalculate the swath’s relative position. A model is derived to relate
the wheel position with the bearing change of the machine.
