GPS-based Agricultural Vehicle Steering

One of the most successful tools available for modern precision farming is the GPS-based steering system. The EZ-Pilot® system provides high-accuracy steering of agriculture equipment utilizing a compact electric motor actuator directly mounted to the vehicle steering wheel. The EZ-Pilot responds to commands from a GPS-based guidance system. The system is employed in both broadacre as well as high-accuracy row crop farming applications.

An Allied Motion Megaflux brushless torque motor with integrated drive electronics is at the heart of the EZ-Pilot system.
