MachineSync allows for coverage and guidance line sharing between machines working in the same field. Either via the John Deere Machine Communication Radio or now also via the JDLink MTG. This means that everyone working in the field can easily identify completed areas, while Section Control automatically avoids double application when spraying, fertilising or seeding. Shared guidance lines ensure that the passes of all vehicles match exactly.
While waiting at the field edge, the tractor operator sees the exact location and grain tank levels of all in-field combines and tractor/trailer units on his display.
The next level of MachineSync enables the GPS-based synchronisation of speed and steering between combine and tractor with grain cart or trailer during unloading in the field. This ensures even filling the trailer without losses and reduces the risk of vehicle collision, especially in dusty conditions. In addition, it provides important logistics information e.g. grain fill tank level and combine position. Operators can make informed decisions about the most direct route to the next destination.
