Billingsley, John (2010) Controlled damping of a 48-metre wide spray rig. In: 16th Annual Conference on Mechatronics and Machine Vision in Practice (M2VIP 2010) , 22-24 Jun 2010, Darussalam, Brunei.
Text (Accepted Version)
A method is investigated for damping the oscillation of a very wide agricultural spray rig. The present mechanical dampers couple the rolling disturbance of the vehicle into the tilt of the spray booms and an alternative technique is desirable. A method whereby the booms are driven in a manner analogous to a tightrope walker's balancing pole is shown to be effective.
