Hemisphere GPS Awarded New Patents for Machine Control and other GNSS Related Technology

The Adaptive Machine Control System and Method patent describes the sophisticated adaptive control methods used to guide vehicles and provide accurate and efficient coverage. The system is comprised of a machine controller, GNSS guidance system, and software and is most commonly used in precision farming. From pre-planned guidance patterns the system provides the ideal pattern adjustments for guidance and automated steering taking into account a variety of conditions and user inputs including path, boundary or terrain irregularities, and minimum turning radius. In addition, the system provides optimal, automated turns and spray nozzle control.  As a result, farmers complete their fieldwork with greater accuracy and efficiency as well as improve their yields and reduce their input expenses. The patent supports current products and new developments within Hemisphere GPS’ precision farming product line including Outback Guidance® branded products.

Hemisphere GPS was awarded seven other patents in 2012 that include advanced GNSS solutions for antenna design, an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), multiple antenna control system, tracking of fixed and slow-moving structures, augmentation of differential corrections, antenna alignment and monitoring system, and vehicle guidance control.

“Hemisphere GPS’ commitment to innovation has generated over 75 pending and issued patents,” said Dr. Mike Whitehead, Chief Scientist at Hemisphere GPS. “Through these inventions and sophisticated new technology, we continuously enhance capability and performance of our positioning, guidance, and machine control solutions in the marketplace.”
