The study on the design and development of computer-controlled system for autonomous tractor in agricultural field has been carried out for the improvement of agricultural mechanization in Malaysia. In this study, an agricultural tractor namely Kubota L3010 hydrostatic tractor has successfully undergone electromechanical modification for autonomous system. Electromechanical modification parts include steering system, gear system, engine ignition system, engine shut down system and acceleration system. A computer-controlled system was designed and attached on the tractor to direct it to move toward desired position automatically with the command given by the operator. ICP-Con electromechanical module device and mechanical relay were used in controlling the tractor navigation. Besides that, a graphical user interface has been developed by using Visual Basic version 6 Software for operator to control the tractor in agriculture field.
