Tractor GPS Navigation
Explore precision farming with parallel driving
eFarmer navigation application is a GPS guidance system to be used on your Android smartphone and/or tablet. Checking the display while driving will enable you to perform field operations in parallel and evenly spaced lines. Thus to reduce overlaps and missed spots. In our system you are able to have the following navigation patterns:
Straight АВ is suitable for the regular shaped square or rectangular fields, without “non operational spots”. In this case our system will automatically draw parallel straight lines that you should follow on your field.
АВ curve is suitable for all field’s shapes and particularly for fields with “non operational spots”. In this case you will make the first run along a curved/non-straight line, after the first turn the application will create next lines parallel to the first run.
Head Land is suitable for spraying operations. In this case you will make the first run along a contour of the field, set A and B points on one side, after driving around field the application will calculate all lines for field and will calculate remaining area.
The distinctive characteristic of eFarmer navigation system is that it combines tractor guidance with farm management. You will not only make parallel lines, but your operation’s details such as area that you covered, type of operation, distance and time spent in the field, materials used will be automatically added to your field report and stored in the secured cloud.
MOBILE AND WEB
Synchronise data between all your devices
With eFarmer you will be able to insert information about your operations directly in the field and work with this data later on from your office.
Login on eFarmer website and see your records on a big screen in your office. You will be able to download, copy and share your data without any restrictions.
Tablet is more practical to use for field farm tasks. The bigger screen and no phone calls will enable you to achieve better results during your work.
You can use your Android smartphone to insert data into the system while working in the field with farm management and navigation systems.
eFarmer is compatible with all Android smartphones and tablets. But the quality of work with the system may be impaired due to your device specific characteristics such as low GPS signal. To get best experience from the eFarmer, check the list of recommended devices.
You are able to work with the system even without cell service. Use “offline” mode of application and all information will be added automatically to your cloud once you’ll get a connection. Although while performing parallel driving it is not recommended to make phone calls from your device as it can lower the stability of GPS signal. To improve the accuracy of the system we advise you to purchase an external antenna.
Working with smartphone and tablet in the cabin will require certain peripherals, such as:
