How it began
Few of their requirements were the ability to use the tablet without any cables. And that system needed to work with automatic steering and to be able to work outside the field, so the farmer can take out the smart device outside the cabin and continue to use it afterwards.
- FieldBee RTK GNSS system with radio mode
- Hydraulic autosteer
The measurements proved 2 cm accuracy. With the hydraulic wheel, it is more accurate at higher speed but it is not a typical steering situation.
They also asked about voice integration in cases of interruptions and we explored the possibility to integrate voice identification and remote control for the autosteering system. During testing, we sum up that radio mode works better to meet the needs.

The results were great. FieldBee was proved to have the same steering performance and high accuracy at a more affordable price. The products were deemed adequate to the high-quality standards of our client.
Since first launching its collaboration with eFarmer 2 years ago, Türk Traktör has evaluated FieldBee product performance, quality, and precision. Together the companies have worked on developing steer ready hardware kits, radiofrequency and software localization for the Turkish market. In early August Turktractor launched a new tractor with FieldBee autosteer and RTK system in it.
