There are several reasons for a detailed planning of the driving route and the implement tasks for
partially or totally autonomous field robots, especially when high accuracy or complex jobs are
demanded, or new robot-like tractors (e.g. without a driver seat or steering wheel) will be
developed. But also the reduction of necessary machine working time in the field by an optimal
preparation in the office is a goal, especially when repeatedly used for time critical work.
