Show us your robot tractor or autonomous kit!

Do you have a robot tractor or autonomous kit for 2021? Show us and we‘ll showcase show yours!

Future Farming is compiling an overview of robot and autonomous tractors that growers can buy or lease in 2021.

The development of robot tractors that should help growers work more efficiently. is going very fast. Demand for autonomous agricultural vehicles is growing in particular due to the impact of Covid-19 and the lack of labour.

But which autonomous tractors are really for sale or for rent for the farming practice? And which autonomous retrofit kits are available for farmer and contractors to make their existing tractor or self-propelled machine completely autonomous?

Vehicle must be able to operate completely autonomously

Future Farming already created an impressive catalogue of all field and harvesting robots that open ground growers can buy or lease in 2021. We also want to compile a catalogue of autonomous tractors and autonomous retrofit kits.

For the record, with autonomous we mean that the vehicle can perform its work completely independently, after the operator has given all necessary instructions. The autonomous tractor should (in principle) be able to execute the same type of work and operations a standard tractor with a driver does. Regardless of how the tractor is powered (electrically, with a combustion engine or hybrid) and with or without a cab.

With autonomous retrofit kits, we are not targeting autopilot steering systems or kits that ‘only’ take over the vehicle steering from the driver and no other functions such as hitch and PTO control and obstacle detection. We will soon be compiling a separate catalogue for autopilot steering systems that can be factory or retrofitted to a tractor or self-propelled machine.

Help us complete our list!
