Raven has opened a new engineering center in Scottsdale, Arizona (U.S.) to accelerate the advancement of its ag technology and is planning an investment in the expansion of its Innovation Campus.

This office location provides Raven with strong connections to Arizona State University. With a focus on product development, data science and artificial intelligence, Raven team members will also have access to a nearby test farm, where they are able to do same-day testing. This model is to enable faster and more efficient agriculture technology iteration with user experience at the forefront.

Real-time engineering testing

In addition to the new Scottsdale location, Raven is also planning an investment in the expansion of its Innovation Campus, located minutes away from the company’s headquarters in Sioux Falls, S.D. The revamped facilities will supply more space and resources for real-time engineering testing, research and development for AI, autonomy, machine learning and core technologies.

“Our integration with Raven is rapidly accelerating technology delivery to customers,” said Parag Garg, Chief Digital Officer, CNH Industrial. “It allows our Engineering teams to efficiently go from ‘code to cab’ to develop and deploy new technologies. These sites, combined with our existing activities, will reinforce our commitment to have engineers work closely with our customers.”

The investments in Arizona and South Dakota are to bolster the company’s engineering talent base, further Raven technology integration and advancements to Case IH and New Holland platforms, and support the demand for innovative aftermarket solutions.

Commitment to autonomous development

“These expansions are a direct reflection of our commitment to autonomous development,” noted John Preheim, Raven Vice President of Engineering. “We are dedicated to delivering autonomous solutions that help growers optimize their operations, and these centers of excellence will provide the space and resources to support this vision.”
