1. A mobile harvesting machine comprising:
a performance characteristic sensor that senses a harvesting performance characteristic and generates a performance characteristic sensor signal indicative of the sensed performance characteristic;
a dynamic event characteristic sensor that senses a characteristic indicative of a dynamic event that affects accuracy of the performance characteristic sensor signal and generates a dynamic event sensor signal indicative of the sensed dynamic event characteristic;
a dynamic event detection system that receives the dynamic event sensor signal, detects the dynamic event based on the dynamic event sensor signal, and generates, a dynamic event output signal indicative of the detected dynamic event;
a dynamic event correction system that receives the dynamic event output signal and identifies a dynamic event correction transfer function based on the dynamic event output signal, the dynamic event correction system comprising:
a correction magnitude identifier configured to determine a magnitude of correction corresponding to the dynamic event correction transfer function based on the identified detected dynamic event; and
a correction application system that applies the dynamic event correction transfer function to the performance characteristic to obtain a corrected performance characteristic.
