In an effort to revolutionize agriculture, John Deere unveiled the first-ever fully autonomous tractor this week at the Consumer Electronics Show. The tractor, available to farmers later this year, is said to be able to follow precise paths, and plant spacing within one inch of accuracy without human intervention. Possessing six stereo cameras, the machine boasts 360-degree obstacle detection, trained on 50 million images, AI and machine learning, real-time data sharing and remote monitoring and management.
Deere says the innovation will help farmers with timeliness and efficiency while improving their quality of life. In development for the last three years, the machine also gives users the option to view live video and images via an app to access real-time delivery performance.
