TruckTrix® Field

Automated field robots can make a significant contribution to meeting the increasing demand for food even with limited availability of fertile farmland and with a reduced use of water, fuel and chemicals. TruckTrix® Field enables the planning of optimal trajectories for field cultivation along existing seed rows. Based on the recorded tracks and parameters of a seed drill, an optimal tillage sequence is determined by setting up a traveling salesman problem and generating a path for field robots that satisfies kinematic constraints and supports service trips such as for automatic reloading.
