CNHI to work with 5G Open Innovation Lab on transformative 5G technologies in the agricultural space.
CNH Industrial has joined the 5G Open Innovation Lab (“5GOILab“), a global applied innovation ecosystem for corporations, academia and government institutions working on developing 5G technologies, as corporate partner.
“We are incredibly excited to join the 5G Open Innovation Lab as their first industry partner for precision agriculture. This platform enables us to collaborate with innovative startups and engage with bright minds working on transformative 5G technologies in the agricultural space,” said Scott Wine, Chief Executive Officer, CNH Industrial.
Through the partnership, CNHI aims to enhance its precision farming portfolio through the development of new connected digital technologies. These technologies are to allow farmers unlock their farms’ true potential, Wine said.
“Novel digital solutions help increasing crop yields while reducing input costs through more precise application, precisely steer equipment on a predetermined guidance path in the field, provide more predictive maintenance, and wirelessly connect the field and the office,” said Parag Garg, Chief Digital Officer, CNH Industrial.
The 5G Open Innovation Lab recently launched its first application development field lab for the agricultural industry with dedicated access to a 5G-capable, CBRS LTE private network and edge computing platform which will serve CNH Industrial as a dynamic testing platform to pilot digital farming solutions for its customers.
