The second iteration of the FieldCondition research focussed on creating a real-time control link and adding more degrees of freedom to the cutting head. In the second iteration, the mower had a real-time link with the control model rather than reading from pre calculated coordinates. This allowed for much greater control of the cutting head as changes to the target surface would affect the position/angle of the cutting arm. Additionally, the control for the cutting head was changed from linear actuators to a 4 axis robot arm to allow for the cutting of much more complex patterns.
