  • Publication number: 20200319632
    Abstract: An autonomous grain cart includes a width less than or equal to a distance from an end of the header of an agricultural vehicle to a lateral side of the agricultural vehicle, wherein the end and the lateral side are on a same longitudinal side of a lateral centerline of the agricultural vehicle, wherein the autonomous grain cart is configured to receive grain from the agricultural vehicle. The autonomous grain cart also includes a controller, comprising a processor and a memory. The autonomous grain cart further includes a drive system communicatively coupled to the controller, wherein the controller is configured to instruct the drive system to propel the autonomous grain cart. The autonomous grain cart also includes a steering system communicatively coupled to the controller, wherein the controller is configured to instruct the steering system to steer the autonomous grain cart.

  • Publication number: 20200319655
    Abstract: A method for continuously conveying agricultural product from an agricultural vehicle to an agricultural product storage tank includes receiving a signal at an autonomous grain cart indicating that another autonomous grain cart is moving to the agricultural product storage tank from the agricultural vehicle. The method also includes determining an expected location of the agricultural vehicle based on a harvesting map for the agricultural vehicle. The method further includes determining a route to the expected location of the agricultural vehicle based on the expected location of the agricultural vehicle and the location of the autonomous grain cart. The method also includes controlling the autonomous grain cart based on the route to the expected location of the agricultural vehicle after the signal indicating that the other autonomous grain cart is moving to the agricultural product storage tank from the agricultural vehicle is received.

  • Publication number: 20200049183
    Abstract: A ready-to-assemble mattress foundation including a plurality of rails forming a mattress foundation having a plurality of corners. The mattress foundation includes a plurality of corner connector assemblies coupling the rails together at the corners. Each of the corner connector assemblies includes a first corner bracket; a second corner bracket; a pin including internal threads and external threads; and a fastener threadably engaging the external threads of the pin to retain the pin relative to the corner brackets. The pin extends through the first apertures and the second apertures. The mattress foundation includes a plurality of central support assemblies coupled to one or more of the rails. Each of the central support assemblies includes a body having internal threads. The mattress foundation includes a plurality of legs each including a threaded rod and threadably received within the internal threads of the pin and the central support assemblies.

  • Patent number: 10206323
    Abstract: A plant by plant harvester is provided. The harvester may harvest and analyze single or double rows of crops. The single row harvester may have a first and a second guide unit which surrounds a single row of a crop and directs the single row of the crop into a sheller, picker, or grain/fruit separation unit. In an alternative embodiment of the device, the device may harvest two rows of crops. A GPS or any other location positioning device having an antenna is secured to the top of the main frame and allows the harvester to be remotely controlled. A hopper, container or holding bin may, in real-time, calculate the weight of the separated products. A plurality of sensors may be located on or near the first and/or second guide unit which allows the harvester to, for example, capture data related to the crop at the single plant level.

  • Patent number: 9737067
    Abstract: An autonomous spraying platform is provided. The autonomous spraying platform has a main frame platform supported by a first and a second wheel in tandem. Supported by the main frame platform and extended perpendicular thereto are extended booms having multiple movable and/or telescoping arms which touch the ground on each side by small wheels for balance and sensing of the ground. Liquids, foams or powders, which may carry pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, fertilizers or other pro-growth ingredients, may be dispensed across the bottom edge of the extended booms. The main frame platform may be controlled locally by sensors utilizing GPS (or other positioning technology) or remotely by a computer or even alive operator. The device may allow for real-time precise delivery of pro-growth materials to plants.

  • Publication number: 20160318607
    Abstract: A tethered drone assembly is provided. The tethered drone assembly may be a vehicle-based tethered drone assembly system or may be a free standing tethered drone assembly system. The tethered drone assembly has a plurality of drones each tethered by a cord. The tethered drones may hover in front of, behind or on either side of the vehicle so as to better survey the surrounding area of the vehicle. In some embodiments, a main product tank is used to supply liquids, foams, gases, powders, electrical power and/or electrical communication to the drones. A plurality of sensors located on the drones allows the drones to detect objects and environmental conditions in front of, behind or on either side of the moving vehicle in real-time and allow the vehicle to therein adjust its work accordingly. The drones may be controlled remotely by a user or may be automatically controlled by sensors.
