In thinking of the future of automation, people tend to gravitate toward personal transportation: cars, buses, even planes and helicopters. But we forget that there are massive industries which could benefit etremendously from the inclusion of vehicles and machinery that can run entirely on their own. Farming is one such industry. The biggest drawback to an increase in farming productivity is the limits of humankind. We need sleep, shelter, food, etc. – all of which autonomous machines do not require. And Case IH, creators of the Autonomous Concept Vehicle tractor, have taken that idea to heart.

In conjunction with CNH Industrial and ASI, they have developed this beastly driverless tractor, which can run entirely on its own or be controlled remotely via a software app on either a mobile tablet or a stationary PC, taking the next giant leap forward in the farming industry. Through the use of cameras, radar, and LiDAR (Light imaging, detection, and ranging), the onboard software can account for the size and nature of any attached machinery, plotting the most efficient path and, if it senses any stationary or moving obstacles in its way, it will automatically stop and notify the operator so a new path may be plotted. The end result is an automated tractor which can be seamlessly incorporated into an already existing fleet of machines to increase productivity to the nth degree.
