Precision agriculture is relying on in-field variability. It requires the use of new technologies, such as GPS/GNSS, sensors or aerial images, and information management tools (GIS) to assess and understand variations. Collected information may be used to more precisely evaluate optimum sowing density, estimate fertilizers and other inputs needs, and to more accurately predict crop yields. It seeks to avoid applying inflexible practices to a crop, regardless of local soil/climate conditions, and may help to better assess local situations of disease or lodging.
Whether clearing shrub in remote locations or navigating traffic in a city center, a robust positioning system is vital and must be reliable even when GNSS availability is not. Autonomous vehicles are capable of sensing their environment and navigating without human input. Advanced control systems interpret sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles. Autonomous vehicles can update their maps based on sensory input, allowing the vehicles to keep track of their position even when conditions change or when they enter uncharted environments. Trimble’s OEM GNSS-Inertial Positioning and Orientation Systems combine modular design with proven technology for a solution you can count on.
NAVIGATION, GUIDANCE & CONTROL
Form your own position and attitude solution using multiple antennas and GNSS receiver modules with the help of Trimble’s powerful moving baseline RTK technology. For higher level OEM solutions, we offer a wide variety of powerful ruggedized GNSS based multi-antenna heading and attitude products in commercial off the shelf plug-and-play configurations.
Trimble now offers integrated GNSS precise positioning and communications solutions in a highly compact form-factor. Leverage different communications technologies like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or GSM for data transfer in unique work scenarios like network based RTK or DGPS applications.
