In agriculture, improvements can be achieved when the various machines plan their processes on the field together and cooperate with one another. Due to changing environmental conditions and stochastic influences, a dynamic planning is required. This imposes special requirements on the exchanged variables, the latency, the format and the quality of information. This paper discusses possible cross-vendor wireless communication standards, data formats, communication scenarios, and autonomous process planning in the field of mobile agricultural machines. In particular, a communication concept for a dynamic planning system will be specified.
