Has there been any suggestion of time scale for a new scheme ? I’m not in touch with any of this stuff, I would ideally like to install a handling system before next winter but could wait another year if something good was round the corner, if nothing likely I’ll bite the bullet and do it myself, it’s just a bit of help would make a big difference . Cheers
Claas has taken a minority shareholding in the Dutch autonomous tractor startup company, AgXeed B.V.
The new company has developed a tractor designed to be autonomous from the ground up, rather than try to adapt existing machines, or create smaller robots dedicated to a limited range of tasks.
AgXeed’s pilot machine is a diesel hybrid powered unit on tracks which uses a suite of software which, the company claims, is easily scalable.
Like many small technology start-ups seeking to gain a foothold in the machinery market, the company also points to the product as being part of a larger system rather than just another way of performing standard tasks
