Kubota’s Autonomous Tractor ‘Agri Robo’ has received the ‘FIMA Technican Novelty’ Award in the ‘Agricultural Management Solution’ category announced during the FIMA show in Spain.
Kubota’s Autonomous Tractor ‘Agri Robo’ has an integrated remote control system that allows a farmer to monitor up to two autonomous Kubota tractors, saving time, money, and resources.
The Technical Innovation Contest is held every year in FIMA and the award is granted to new developments that stand out in terms of sustainability, work safety, innovation and R&D.
The management operations software has been developed by Kubota, along with Japanese company Topcon, and the Kansas State University. Its main goal is to speed up autonomous tractor management in real time and thus improve and ease farmers’ work.
Agri Robo combines the functions of existing tractors, such as the L-series, and delivers a previous accurate planning of its tasks. The combination of its sonar and scanner means that this tractor can spot and avoid any obstacles for maximum safety. In addition, its low engine speed and lighter weight enable a smooth operation in tough conditions.
