Cerea. Free Manual Guidance System
After a few tests and different configurations of our GPS receptor, we decided to work with our new manual guidance system. We think it can be evaluated with 8 over 10 but we know this system will improve with our training.
Firstly, we would like to comment about hardware is used: Itronix Duo-Touch ix325 TabletPC, Black Vacuum Pump Suction Cup Base and Rojone GPS receptor.
Secondly, the software which controls all hardware components is Cerea. Cerea is a free software application you can download from owner's blog and from forum which works really fine. It has several features: different measurements, some screen configurations,... It runs on Windows and on Android too.
Finally, using this type of technology our feelings are you can see easily your job done, where you will have to perform the next passes then you can reduce overlap where you cann't use markets. Rojone receptor GPS works with Egnos signal and we have accuracy about 20cm. It is accuracy enough for jobs which are different from sowing, like: fertilizing, spraying, compactation, harrowing,.... Cerea offers a important help. At the end of your task, you can download a file with your works and you can see them in your computer using Google Earth.
