[Abstract]: An autonomous robot has been proposed to perform precision agricultural tasks. In addition to vision guidance and odometry, it will require GPS navigation with an accuracy of ten centimetres or better. This paper describes two complimentary methods of employing signals from a pair of low-cost receivers to achieve this accuracy. The method has potential for application to more general tractor guidance.
