Agricultural machinery

In the field of agricultural machinery, special demands are placed on machine control systems and man-machine interfaces. It is almost always the case that various items of equipment produced by different manufacturers (e.g. tractors and their implements) are combined to form a single system. These combinations alternate all the time, and switch-overs need to take place within a matter of minutes. For this reason, moves to standardize electronic data communications based on ISO Standard 11783 were pushed with considerable interest in the field of agricultural machinery. With vt-designer, you can create the object pools you need to control your tractor’s implements. Once coupled up to the tractor, implements are indicated on the terminal integrated in the tractor, allowing the equipment to be used without time-consuming switching of operating elements in the cab.
