Reimer Robotics Autonomous Tractor

Posted on January 18, 2016 at 4:17pm 20 Comments

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…

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 (

WE can install for all kinds of tractors.


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?

Oh, I wish I'd documented the MT wiring.  It's all pretty straightforward, though (especially with the service docs).  Controls are 500 Hz PWM.
