Nowadays, many Tractors come with hydraulic steering valves pre-fitted. It is actually not very much, i think the dealers are hoping that the customers come back and buy their GPS System. I think it makes absolutely sense to provide steering control over ISOBUS in AOG,
but I can not oversee how much work it is yet.
I have done some research about implementing an ISOBUS ECU on a PC. I will dig deeper into it when I have more time this winter, but it may be interesting for others, too?
Getting started with IsoAgLib
Abstract of an Implementation of a Lighting system.
Interesting is that they have partial a virtual isobus over ethernet.
This can give us the possibility to bring together the Isobus and non-Isobus guys. Wireless Isobus over Wifi seems possible. No ISOBUS connectors to buy (expensive) and to plug in. No cabling to get damaged… Maybe we can find out more about it.
There are some implementation examples out there, mostly from universities.
