"Grant, Any update on the geo fence for rover capabilities? I think the obstacle detection/avoidance feature would be very useful as well.  Thanks Colin"

Reimer Robotics Autonomous Tractor

Hey DIY Drones here is a video highlighting my work over the last year.  I've decided to try and start a company automating tractors.  This is the first video highlighting my work.  

I'll be showing it an agricultural trade show that starts tomorrow, but wanted to post it here first as this is where I got my start.  If you have seen some of the earlier videos…

Hi, Matthew, I am interested with use Your program in Trimble autopilot (TMX 2050 display have Android  OS). Do You use optical pattern recognition when working together with the harvester?

WE have the similar control valve like the Outback Edrive. So if I understand true we can connect Your Pixhawk autopilot directly to this valve. So is it possible to buy Your set together with Your program on tablet PC?  May be in the next step You can make the set on base Android tablet.  See our steering valve  Control%20valve%20trimble.jpg (http://api.ning.com:80/files/oxqkUGVun7RlXx4fy9j*Li7kIS4m8Zt0zNYCUkhAk2NSHVu2YkkKCFNvHRs0zPSUq*lAn2UOnrXNxcD9F7DV5YlArBNipyHr/Controlvalvetrimble.jpg)

Now we need for NH TJ530. We can install Trimble Autopilot NAVIII with accuracy pass to pass till 2-3 sm. And what kind of sensor do You use? What will the tractor if it hits an obstacle?
