Abstract This paper describes the objectives and preliminary results of the STRATOS project (System for TRAcTOrs’ autonomous OperationS), within the framework of ICT-AGRI ERA-NET (Coordination of European Research within ICT and Robotics in Agriculture and related Environmental Issues). The main objective of the STRATOS project is to develop an open ICT hardware-software infrastructure enabling the partial automation of tractors and at the same time enhancing their operational safety and production efficiency, with the positive effects of reduced accident risk and environmental impact. In more detail, STRATOS project target is to develop and demonstrate new functions enabled by ISOBUS technology (ISO 11783) that support a substantial improvement of the quality of the farming jobs. In particular the idea is to develop a technology based on ISOBUS compliant, wireless self-powered sensor network for the real time measurement of soil and harvester conditions. In this way, Task Controller (an ICT component defined by ISOBUS specification which supervises actively the farming job performed by the tractor) can optimize the whole tractor and implement operational modes to improve the farming job quality and safety of the overall systems. The project started on 1st April, 2011, and will end the 31st March, 2013, This paper reports about some achievement gained so far.
