Raven launches new platform for driverless ag technology

Raven Industries launched its new platform, OMNi, with two integrated products: OMNiDRIVE and OMNiPOWER. OMNiDRIVE is Raven’s aftermarket technology kit that transforms existing tractors into driverless machines. OMNiPOWER is a self-propelled power platform that easily interchanges with farm implements.

Monitor and operate driverless tractor

According to Raven Industries it is the first farming application that allows the farmer to monitor and operate a driverless tractor from the cab of the harvester so the harvester can offload on-the-go, then return the tractor and grain cart to a predetermined unloading area – all without a second driver.

The technology connects, manages, and operates autonomous agricultural machinery and is compatible with:

  • Case IH Magnum CVT (2014-2020 models): M250 / 280 / 310 / 340 / 380 (available in October 2021)
  • New Holland CVT (2014-2020 models): T8.320 / 350 / 380 / 410 / 435 (available in October 2021)
  • John Deere 8Rs Powershift and IVT (2010-current models)

Interchange with implements

OMNiPOWER is a self-propelled power platform that easily interchanges with farm implements. This is to allow the ag professional to perform multiple farm tasks in all the growing seasons. The farmer launches missions in autonomous mode or can also control directly from the tablet. In either instance, no driver is necessary.

Currently, OMNiPOWER has interchangeable implements for spreading and spraying with additional applications coming soon. More implements will launch quickly and consistently as Raven works with OEM partners to release new implements.
