Determining the best path planning for an agricultural task is a very important issue in crop management because it directly affects the distances travelled by the agricultural machines and, accordingly, directly affects the soil compaction that occurs and the inputs that are consumed (time and fuel). However, determining the optimal path is a difficult problem because of the large number of variables that must be taken into account: number of vehicles, speeds, turning radii, geometry of the… CONTINUE READING
