But I'm still not sure which sentence needs to contain the status. I'm assuming its for control of an opener on off to create a line, but not sure.

I like the feature!
Looking in the PGN I found 3 possible placese, but all have troubles
- use Section 16, the highest bit in highbyte, but we will loose the possibility to go to 16 sections
- use uturn byte: pro: could be defined free via GUI by user con: 8 ways out from AOG aren't much
- use rate setpoint right, highest bit in highbyte: would only cause conflict when using dual rate, but still possible, only the range would be half, as on bit less

I would prefer the last one: highest bit in rate setpoint right of section controll sentence.

Just my 2 ct.

Rate needs some work, maybe we should add another pgn for things like the volume coming back as int rather then byte etc.


Or a pgn for just the switches?

I agree, rate needs some work. First the question: I can't find the dual rate any more. For what reason is it out, no need, causing trouble? I liked the feature and if it worked i would like to keep it.
If we kick it out, there are bits in the Arduino to AOG switches and bytes for the rates free.
If we keep it, we different pgn for the switches and the rates would be good, as the switches could only be send when changed, but then immediately, whereas the rates should be send at 1 Hz.

So suggestion for Arduino to AOG: new pgn for rates.
But our problem is the other way, tramlines from AOG to Arduino.

No space in the autosteer sentence, hardly one bit in the section control, by cutting it from rate right.

So first decision dual rate yes or no.

Took dual out because it was a bit complicated and hard to catch errors, was hoping maybe to fix the rate stuff, but wasn't sure anyone was using it. Bit of a side convo is the possibility of VR and maybe combining rates for anything and VR mapping etc.



My thoughts would be to get rate with single channel working well. Can always add a second channel as its just a duplicate of the one side, which is why it is called left, you just refactor the code and change the left to right. So I guess think about what is needed, don't be shy about adding pgns and complete sentences.



Do we need 16 channels? OR is 12 more then sufficient? Or 8?

12 sections are in use by some guys for corn planters. I kept the last 4 to 16 free, as they may fit in the bytes. I don't know, how much pc horsepower the 4 more would need, so I wouldn't change the 2 bytes, max 16 sections.

At this moment I use a dual liquids, so dual rate sprayer in my vineyards, to spray the grapes and the leaf different. But it is all manual, no flowmeter rate control.

I looked back in the sk21 overflow threat, it's only a problem form Arduino to AOG, so here a new rate only sentence would help.

For the other way, we hijack the bit from rateset right or put it in the section control settings, there are bytes free, or
New suggestion add a new sentence tool control and a sentence tool answers/alerts.
This would be the best idea to have space fore future bits and controls for the tools.

Thoughts?
The German guys are in the fields right now, planting sugar beets or barely.

Another suggestion to tramlines: some use section control for corn planters. So it might be good to separate it from section control: send an new, additional signal for the tramlines, so e.g. for sugar beet planters the Arduino could combin the signals and switch the rows for tramlines off additionally to the section control. For 3m airseeders for wheat only the tramlines are needed to close the rows. To completely independent would be good.

Thinking about tramlines additional suggestion:
It would be good to see them later on, so when active:
- change colour of vehicle triangle
- paint a line e.g. in dark green or other colour
- safe the line with the field and be able to load it, without the applied area, like a boundary

For gui:
New register tab in Batman left window with:
- First row/start
- interval
- Manual on/off for triangles...

Thoughts?

Hi guys, is there any news concerning the tramline topic? I am additionaly interested at using Agopengps and an andruino to control the sections of our drill machine. Thx

Me too, also the need for half tramline, because our tramlines are exactly between 2 workpaths

as mentioned before, little more explanation about it..
when seeding wheat, i’d like to use the tramlines for triggering my tramlinevalves in the seeder, but as told, our tramlines are exactly in the middle of two working paths of our seeder, so i need a half tramlinesection disabled in workpath 4, and also in workpath 5, when seeding.

Any thoughts about that?

Yes, but i’m guessing its better to set the tramlines in meters from boundary or workpath zero instead of choosing which workpath is a tramline.
