Turning algorithm for a robot tractor was developed in this paper. Two types of turning paths
were created by applying third-order Spline function; forward turning and switch-back turning.
The constraints relating to the tractor characteristics, minimum turning radius and maximum
steering speed, were introduced for creating a feasible turning path. The turning path was
recalculated while created path didn’t meet these constraints.
