Krone and Lemken are focussing on autonomy

The agricultural technology specialists Krone and Lemken are expanding the range of applications for their autonomous process unit by utilising the front attachment space.

With their joint ‘Combined Powers’ project, Krone and Lemken are endeavouring to advance and bring into focus not only the development of autonomous process units, but also the associated work processes by carrying out additional practical deployments at home and abroad. The findings and results of the field trials in 2022 and 2023 were incorporated into the optimisation and further development of various features of the process units.

Autonomous tractor units

The functionality of the autonomous process unit has been enhanced by the integration of a front linkage with PTO shaft; this means that two separate, intelligent attachment spaces are now available. This combination can be used in both grassland and arable farming. The VTEs (autonomous process units) were further developed, taking into account ease of maintenance, practicality and optimisation of the sensor carriers.

The advanced autonomous tractor units from Krone and Lemken enable large-scale practical trials and significantly improve the reliability of autonomous processes. The test deployments take place on various farms in Germany and neighbouring European countries in order to test the functionality and communication of the autonomous process units (VTE) using various implements under real conditions.
