In agriculture, one has always been working on organizing the processes more efficiently, costeffectively, and resource-efficiently. Increasing the machines efficiency alone provides only limited improvement to the overall productivity. Further improvements can be achieved when the various machines plan their processes on the field together and cooperate with one another. This paper describes a dynamic distributed infield planning system for the grain harvest. In particular, it focuses on the underlying target system and the dynamic route planning.
