Battery life is critical for battery-powered agricultural rovers, so techniques such as optimized moving path planning are of great significance in this field. Finding an optimized path other than straight-line path could save energy and prolong the battery life. Compared with traditional straight-line path planning, an energy-optimized path planning is realized based on artificial potential field algorithm. In simulation studies, most of the uphill is avoided and at least 10.15 % of energy is saved with the optimized path planning. We believe this energy optimization path planning algorithm is a feasible solution to extend the battery life for field operated agricultural rover.
