A Path Tracking Method for Autonomous Rice Drill Seeder in Paddy Fields
School of Mechanical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China
For the purpose of overcoming the obstacles in application of autonomous rice drill seeder in paddy fields, a path tracking algorithm with high accuracy used for steering control during straight traveling in uneven muddy paddy fields is introduced in this paper. Combining lateral deviation and heading angle deviation as feedback, a nonlinear steering control model is developed in the algorithm. To avoid the position error caused by incline, the influence brought by the roll angle and the pitch angle of the vehicle on position coordinates are taken into account when the vehicle is on a slant. The experiments carried out in arable paddy fields show that the mean absolute lateral deviation of the algorithm was less than 2.9 centimeters and the heading angle deviation was less than 0.03°. The path tracking algorithm is able to meet the required precision for autonomous rice drill seeder in paddy fields of China.
