Vehicle Control System With User-Guided Calibration

View page
US Patent:
7225060, May 29, 2007
Filed:
Jul 30, 2004
Appl. No.:
10/903847
Inventors:
Michael L. Eglington - San Francisco CA,
Lars G. Leckie - San Francisco CA,
Qinghe Chang - San Jose CA,
Brian G. Walter - Mountain View CA,
Glen Sapilewski - Redwood City CA,
Assignee:
Novariant, Inc. - Menlo Park CA
International Classification:
G06F 7/00
G01D 18/00
US Classification:
701 1, 701 36, 324202, 702 85
Abstract:
A vehicle control system with user-guided calibration is presented. In one embodiment, a vehicle control system is presented comprising an output device and circuitry operative to provide an output, via the output device, that guides a user through a plurality of calibration steps in a particular order. The circuitry can additionally or alternatively be operative to determine which of the calibration steps, if any, to present as a next calibration step based on whether a given calibration step is successful. Other embodiments are provided, and each of the embodiments can be used alone or in combination with one another.

System And Method For Interactive Selection Of Agricultural Vehicle Guide Paths Through A Graphical User Interface Other Than Moving The Vehicle

View page
US Patent:
7256388, Aug 14, 2007
Filed:
Feb 4, 2005
Appl. No.:
11/051507
Inventors:
Michael Eglington - Menlo Park CA,
Michael L. O'Connor - Redwood City CA,
Lars G. Leckie - San Francisco CA,
Glen A. Sapilewski - Redwood City CA,
Assignee:
Novariant, Inc. - Menlo Park CA
International Classification:
H01J 40/14
US Classification:
250221, 25055929
Abstract:
A system and method provide for precision guiding of agricultural vehicles along a series of adjacent paths to form rows for cultivating a field. In one aspect of the invention the vehicle is moved along a first path while receiving positioning information from a navigational system (e. g. , RTK GPS). This positioning information is stored in a processor and is used by the processor to compute a second path adjacent to said first path by calculating piecewise perpendicular offsets from the first path at multiple locations along the first path. The process is repeated to compute a third and subsequent paths so as to cover the field. Because of the offset process, the field may be covered with paths that have varying curvature along their length, while providing substantially no gaps or overlaps in the coverage of the field. In another aspect of the invention, the system may propose alternative paths and the user can intervene by steering the vehicle or using a graphical user interface to select among the alternative paths. A still further aspect of the invention allows for the recording of the paths that provide coverage of a field in the form of a template.

Implement Control System And Method Of Using Same

View page
US Patent:
2008019, Aug 14, 2008
Filed:
Feb 9, 2007
Appl. No.:
11/704583
Inventors:
Glen Alan Sapilewski - Redwood City CA,
Michael Lee O'Connor - Redwood City CA,
Manou Serres - Redwood City CA,
Michael Lyle Eglington - Burlingame CA,
Assignee:
Novariant, Inc. - Menlo Park CA
International Classification:
G05D 1/00
US Classification:
701 23
Abstract:
An implement steering system includes at least one sensor for providing an indication of tilt associated with an implement as it traverses along an implement path of travel and at least another sensor for providing an indication of the current position of the implement as it traverses along the implement path of travel. A processor provides an implement drift correction signal in response to the indication of tilt and the indication of current position in order of facilitate correcting the implement path of travel so it corresponds to a desired path of travel, while an implement steering arrangement which is responsive to the drift correction signal causes the implement path of travel to be corrected so it corresponds to the desired path of travel as the implement is pulled through an open field by an implement pulling vehicle.

System And Method For Land-Leveling

US Patent:
6880643, Apr 19, 2005
Filed:
Feb 6, 2003
Appl. No.:
10/359409
Inventors:
Kurt R. Zimmerman - Mountain View CA,
Avi Gross - Palo Alto CA,
Michael O'Connor - Redwood City CA,
Glen Sapilewski - Redwood City CA,
David G. Lawrence - Mountain View CA,
H. Stewart Cobb - Palo Alto CA,
Lars Leckie - San Francisco CA,
Paul Y. Montgomery - Menlo Park CA,
Assignee:
Novariant, Inc. - Menlo Park CA
International Classification:
E02F003/76
US Classification:
172 45, 701 50
Abstract:
A land-leveling system that uses the Global Positioning System is provided. The system provides for an earth-moving machine mounted with an antenna that receives GPS signals from the satellites of the Global Positioning System. The earth-moving machine comprises a vehicle attached to a work implement, which is also connected to an actuator. A decision unit mounted on the vehicle sends control signals to the actuator, which controls the elevation of the work implement. These control signals are generated using the signals received from the antenna and the desired grade map. This system has an increased coverage area, more accuracy and round-the-clock operability. The system could be used to carry out all the land-leveling operations viz. surveying, leveling and verifying.
