FieldBee Autosteer: What, more autosteer?

Yep: this time from EFarmer, a fairly new concern based in the Ukraine and the Netherlands. It offers three packages under the FieldBee banner: manual steer, manual steer with an RTK base station and the one featured here, RTK-corrected full autosteer using an electric motor

A reasonable place to start with steering kits is to see what comes in the box, how easy it all is to fit and what it costs. Actually that’s three places, but still. There are several bits of hardware to the FieldBee Autosteer System: a DC electric motor for the steering column, a controller/gyroscope unit to sense tilt, pitch and yaw, process data and direct the steering motor; a L2 GNSS receiver for signals from GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BaiDou satellite networks plus RTK correction, and finally a WiFi/mobile network router able to take in a correction signal and send data out to the wider world.
