Assessment of the Can Bus Technology Implemented on Modern Agricultural Tractors to Study Fuel Consumption Savings
MetadataShow full item record
In developed countries, the mechanized agriculture is highly dependent on fuel. Unfortunately, the heterogeneity and complexity inherent to agricultural process do not help the actors (researchers, counselors, farmers) to improve fuel consumption efficiency in the farms. In order to measure precisely the use of the tractors this study proposes to rely on the embedded CAN bus technology and RTK positioning system implementing modern tractors to record fully characterized data of the engine load. This study demonstrates the feasibility of such proposition by testing specific dataloggers and software in-situ and by decoding signals to data and characterizing them.
