Providing all farmers with the most up-to-date technology is a priority for us, said Jeff Morris, chief marketing officer of AgJunction. With the addition of A+ heading support, along with five other new features, farmers can further fine-tune their autosteering for peak performance.
AgJunction is pleased to bring its unique expertise in solving complex control challenges to help Wheelman customers autosteer with greater precision and performance. Whirl, the first smart autosteering mobile app that also serves as a display for the Wheelman autosteer products, is key to bringing these features to farmers without any additional cost or hassle.
The June Whirl app update also includes
Steering Sensitivity — Determines how aggressively the vehicle steers onto the guidance line when approaching it from close proximity.
Backlash — Allows the Wheelman system to compensate for slack in the steering mechanism and direct the steering wheel back to zero degrees to drive straight.
Angle of Attack — Determines how aggressively the vehicle steers onto the guidance line when approaching it from a distance.
Cross Track Error — Measures the distance from the current driving position to the guidance line.
Whirl adds these features to fine-tune autosteering to account for different farming activities and speeds, implement types, and unique equipment characteristics. The free Whirl app now lets every farmer effortlessly adjust their Wheelman autosteering system for peak performance by providing the high value technology at a cost-effective price point.
In addition, the latest update to the Whirl app improves the calibration step. The improvements include added visualization in the vehicle calibration and more robust firmware upgrade steps, as part of the 'simpler to use' approach.
We're excited to continually provide up-to-date technology to our farmers at no additional cost, said Morris. Additional updates to the Whirl app will be available in the near future.
The Wheelman lineup of simple, affordable autosteering systems that can benefit every farm was introduced earlier this year. Starting at just $3,995, each Wheelman Pro comes with everything a farmer needs for easy installation and operation (install kit, IMU, smart antenna, power cable), at no additional cost. And, the Wheelman Flex offers an additional benefit, allowing farmers to easily move and use the autosteer system between their other vehicles, further reducing the overall cost of outfitting a farming operation with autosteering.
