  1. 1. Communication Between Precision Agriculture Devices with an Emphasis on Changes and Compatibility Issues Kent Shannon Natural Resource Engineer University of Missouri Extension Boone County
  2. 2. Need to ask some questions first <ul><li>What precision ag technology am I using or could potentially use? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>GPS Guidance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Yield Mapping </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Equipment control </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Variable rate application </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data Collection </li></ul></ul>Will custom application be part of using precision ag technology? Will services be provided? Will producer be part of using precision ag technology?

  12. 17. Auto-Guide Option Seems to provide some available options specifically provides NMEA output for connecting various other precision ag equipment such as an AgLeader Insight display
  13. 18. AFS ACCUGUIDE TM Option NMEA output could be an issue. There are a few instances if using Omnistar Correction Signals XP/HP or RTK problems might exist. The issue is how NMEA data is transmitted. Review the GGA string contains information regarding GPS 1 is for standard GPS 2 is for WAAS or Omnistar VBS Beacon etc 3 Don't remember off the top of my head 4 RTK Fixed 5 RTK Float 4 & 5 are also used by Omnistar XP/HP Some monitors or mapping software etc don't account for anything higher than 2 so will possibly report no DGPS when using Omnistar XP/HP or RTK.
  14. 19. GreenStar 2 System, GS2 2600 Display
  15. 20. GREENSTAR™ AUTOTRAC Option NMEA output could be an issue. Requires special cabling. NMEA input to the GS2 display can also be an issue. There are a few instances if using Omnistar Correction Signals XP/HP or RTK problems might exist. The issue is how NMEA data is transmitted.
