Abstract:The research focuses on developing and evaluating an operational logic for a harvester chaser bin combination. The agriculture sector is currently facing a loss of labour force, growing food demand and to top it all off, lower yields due to soil compaction. Therefore, the HAN initiated a project called the DurableCASE to introduce robust robotics in the agriculture sector. One of these robotic systems is a tractor chaser bin combination developed by H2Trac, called the EOX. The hardware for the EOX is currently being developed at a fast pace, but the operational logic has not been created yet. This thesis creates this operational logic, capable of finding the shortest route before the harvest (offline) and dictates all vehicles during the harvest (online). This logic is evaluated in a simulation model on how it performs on the level of soil compaction and the harvester utilisation.
