In this paper technology pilot for two autonomous autonomous tractors working in the same field at the same time doing different operation is presented. The intention is to keep a farmer/driver in one of the vehicles, to supervise the autonomous operation of the fleet. This should guarantee both safely and practical considerations for maintenance of vehicles, including refilling. The common mission planner optimizes the routes for each autonomous vehicle on the fly; to make sequentially dependent operations work in right order and to prevent collision free paths. To improve situational awareness, augmented reality headset is used for the driver to present status information of both vehicles.
