Measurement Accuracy of Actual Speed of Wheeled Agricultural Tractors by On-Board Computers 1999-01-2829

Speed measurement accuracy of computers installed on wheeled tractors, not equipped with radar velocity transducers depends on the following: the rolling radius of the wheel to which the speed sensor is connected; the number of sensor's pulses per revolution; and algorithms used for processing the data that arrives from the speed sensor.
The work deals with the effect of static tire characteristics and other factors influencing the speed measurement accuracy of wheeled tractors by means of on-board computers. Recommendations are given aimed at accuracy improvement when measuring tractor speed.
