Targeted. Efficient. Safe.

Control your machines optimally in the right track.

With LC:NAVGUIDE-Auto Steering you get a reliable solution for automatic steering of agricultural machines in the field. The basic module extends the functional range of Parallel Tracking in the area of automatic machine guidance. In future, your machines will not only be optimally guided in tracks across the field, but will also be controlled automatically. This allows you to achieve significantly higher accuracy than with manual steering alone. To integrate the solution into your agricultural machinery, an additional steering system consisting of a steering ECU, a high-precision GPS receiver based on RTK and the connection of the systems to the steering mechanisms of your vehicle is required.

  • Possibility of integration into a wide variety of manufacturer-independent steering systems
  • Adaptation of the software module according to individual customer requirements
  • Applicable in all phases of arable farming, from sowing and care to harvesting
  • Optimal utilisation of working widths independent of machine type and field shape
  • Reduction of resource expenditure in terms of personnel and means of production (e.g. seeds, fertilizer, ...)
