This paper develops two analytical models that describe the yaw dynamics of a farm tractor and can be used to design or improve steering control algorithms for the tractor. These models are verified against empirical data. The particular dynamics described are the motions from steering angle to yaw rate. A John Deere 8420 tractor, outfitted with inertial sensors and controlled through a PC-104 form factor computer, was used for experimental validation. Conditions including different implements at varying depths, as would normally be found on a farm, were tested. This paper presents the development of the analytical models, validates them against empirical data, and gives trends on how the model parameters change for different configurations.
