  • US Patent:
    6539303, Mar 25, 2003
  • Filed:
    Dec 8, 2000
  • Appl. No.:
    09/733641
  • Inventors:
    John A. McClure - Scottsdale AZ,
    Dennis M. Collins - Gilbert AZ,
    Richard W. Heiniger - Hiawatha KS,
  • International Classification:
    G01C 2100
  • US Classification:
    701213, 701202, 701 36, 180204
  • Abstract:
    A swathing guidance system includes a controller storing data defining a desired vehicle path, a position detector subsystem such as a differential GPS receiver, and a display to graphically display current spatial parameters and corrective steering actions to place the vehicle on the desired path or to maintain it on the path. The controller periodically selects a future intercept point on the path and calculates a steering correction angle to point the vehicle toward the intercept point. The display includes a steering guide which displays the steering correction angle relative to the current heading and the current track error or distance from the desired path. The steering correction angle can alternatively be applied to an automatic steering mechanism to automatically maintain the vehicle on the desired path. In agricultural applications, the system is applicable to both parallel and contour cultivation modes.

  • Filed:
    Jun 24, 2004
  • Appl. No.:
    10/875776

  • Assignee:
    Hemisphere GPS LLC - Hiawatha KS
  • International Classification:
    B62D 13/00
    G01C 21/00
  • US Classification:
    701 23, 180 91, 318587
  • Abstract:
    An automatic steering system and method are provided for a vehicle including an hydraulic primary steering system. The automatic steering system includes a guidance module with a GPS receiver and a microprocessor adapted to process and store GPS data defining travel paths, which can be associated with a cultivated field in an agricultural vehicle application. An automatic steering module is connected to the guidance module and to a steering valve control block, which provides pressurized hydraulic fluid in parallel with the vehicle's primary hydrostatic steering system. The automatic steering system utilizes a constant factor, such as steering rate, for predictability and simplicity in the operation of the automatic steering system. A feedback loop from the vehicle hydrostatic steering system uses the vehicle's actual turning rate for comparison with a desired turning rate. The system is adapted for original equipment installation and retrofitting on vehicles, such as farm tractors, with various primary hydrostatic steering system configurations.

  • US Patent:
    7162348, Jan 9, 2007
  • Filed:
    Dec 11, 2003
  • Appl. No.:
    10/733960
  • Inventors:
    John A. McClure - Scottsdale AZ,

  • Assignee:
    Hemisphere GPS LLC - Hiawatha KS
  • International Classification:
    G06F 19/00
  • US Classification:
    701 50, 701 41, 2804561
  • Abstract:
    An articulated equipment position control system and method are provided for equipment consisting of motive and working components. The components are connected by an articulated connector, such as a pivotal hitch. GPS-derived positional data is utilized for power-articulating the hitch to maintain the working component, such as an implement, on a predetermined course. Operator-induced course deviations can thus be corrected. The working component can also be positioned to follow the course of the motive component. The system includes a microprocessor control subsystem, which interfaces with a steering guidance system.

  • International Classification:
    G01C 21/00
    G06G 7/76
  • US Classification:
    701213, 701 50
  • Abstract:
    An adaptive guidance system for a vehicle includes an on-board GPS receiver, an on-board processor adapted to store a preplanned guide pattern and a guidance device. The processor includes a comparison function for comparing the vehicle GPS position with a line segment of the preplanned guide pattern. The processor controls the guidance device for guiding the vehicle along the line segment. Various guide pattern modification functions are programmed into the processor, including best-fit polynomial correction, spline correction, turn-flattening to accommodate minimum vehicle turning radii and automatic end-of-swath keyhole turning.

  • US Classification:
    239163, 239159, 239160, 239167, 91405, 92 85 B
  • Abstract:
    A variable rate suspension system for a boom sprayer including a lift assembly and chassis. The suspension system includes a needle valve fluidly connected to a hydraulic accumulator and a first and second lift arm cylinder. A control block provides hydraulic fluid to the system and lift arm cylinders. Dampening of vertical accelerations encountered by the chassis and transmitted to the boom sprayer through the lift assembly is controlled by adjusting the rate hydraulic fluid flows from the cylinders into the accumulator using the needle valve.
