Reid, J., Moorehead, S., Foessel, A., and Sanchez, J., "Autonomous Driving in Agriculture Leading to Autonomous Worksite Solutions," SAE Technical Paper 2016-01-8006, 2016, doi:10.4271/2016-01-8006.
A transformation of agriculture reached commercial reality at the beginning of this century as automated steering of agricultural machine systems increased the productivity and convenience in crop production systems. Following guidance, additional technologies have resulted in increasing optimized machine productivity. Today, integrated worksite solutions through machine and information management continues to transform agriculture. This is the precursor to autonomous worksite solutions that lead to the optimization of the worksite ecosystem. This paper will review the progress from the perspective of the customer value provided by increasing automated systems and the industry execution of autonomous driving technologies and will enable the pathways to autonomous worksites.
