1. A transport vehicle arrangement for use in an unloading arrangement with an agricultural harvester vehicle, comprising:
a transport vehicle;
a transport implement coupled with the transport vehicle;
a sensor arrangement for establishing an angular orientation of the transport implement relative to the transport vehicle;
a wireless receiver for receiving harvester information relating at least to a speed and direction of an agricultural harvester vehicle; and
an electrical processing circuit coupled with the sensor arrangement and the wireless receiver, the electrical processing circuit being configured for steering the transport vehicle arrangement in a reverse direction such that the transport implement is positioned at a desired position relative to an unloading conveyance of the agricultural harvester vehicle, based upon the sensed angular orientation of the transport implement and the harvester information.
