The remote hardware controlled safety system is tested successfully on the tractor in a hardware in the loop setting. The tractor control unit software is now being prepared for running on the real-time controllers that control the machines. All necessary outputs are interfaced. Some inputs have to be interfaced via CAN. To perform a proof-of-principle test under a practical conditions, a field is rented.
