This self-driving tractor that automatically plant and harvest, could take farmers out of the fields.
CNH Industrial’s Innovation Group unveiled a self-driving tractor, uses radar and video cameras to ‘see’ fields.
The company has proactively developed concept autonomous technology, to meet this challenge and help farmers and agribusinesses sustainably.
The tractor can boost production and productivity, through the ability to make the most of ideal soil and weather conditions, as well as available labor.
Auto-steering and telematics are already available on today’s tractors and autonomous technology takes this a significant stage further. Based on the existing Case IH Magnum and New Holland T8 high-horsepower conventional tractors, and using GPS in conjunction with the most accurate satellite correction signals for ultra-precise guidance and immediate recording and transmission of field data, the CNH Industrial autonomous tractor concept has been designed to allow completely remote deployment, monitoring and control of the machines.
