Provides 1-inch repeatable accuracy
StarFireTM RTK provides highly accurate corrections to the AutoTrac™ guidance system. It utilizes a local, ground-based reference station that transmits the high-accuracycorrections to a vehicle StarFire receiver via RTK radios. Because of the proximity of thebase station to the vehicle, nearly all GPS drift is eliminated, and the position ishighly repeatable. In order for the base station signal to reach the vehicle, a directline-of-sight is required.

AutoTrac™ reduces overlap
University studies have shown ag equipment operators tend to overlap 5% to 10% over the course of an entire day, which could mean up to 4 feet of overlap with a 40 foot implement. Think about how much 5% to 10% more fuel, fertilizer, seed, chemicals, equipment wear, and time might cost the average operation. Now, reduce these numbers to 1-2 inches of overlap, which can be accomplished when a guidance system is being used, and you can see how an AutoTrac system can pay off in any operation.
AutoTrac allows operators to be more productive as they focus on tasks, other than steering, while traveling down the field.
When operators have to spend their entire work day manually steering a machine while watching for obstacles and checking to make sure the implement is operating as designed, they get very tired. Using the AutoTrac Assisted Steering System greatly reduces the strain on the operator because the system accurately guides the vehicle down the most optimum pass, consequently reducing input costs, all the while allowing the operator to focus on other tasks at hand.
Other benefits to the operator include:
All these benefits result in more uptime for the equipment and an operator who is more alert at the end of the day, a benefit everyone can appreciate.
AutoTrac™ allows for faster working speeds
Productivity is very important to any successful farming operation. A greater number of acres can be covered when a machine is traveling across field at higher speeds, and this directly affects productivity.
AutoTracTM allows operators to travel faster throughout the working day because they are not concentrating on manually steering the vehicle on the correct pass through the field; AutoTrac accurately steers for them. This value is obvious when performing tasks that require high rates of speed such as spraying or while completing difficult passes with contours or curves. Being able to work faster, if only by a mile or two per hour more, will boost productivity on any operation and the farmer will feel better at the end of the day.
