CNH can now deploy Cubic’s PACE connectivity platform across tractor, harvester, and crop protection models, with possible further future expansion.
A fleet of tractors that can gather real-time data to help farmers increase productivity and streamline efficiency; according to connected vehicle software company Cubic Telecom and CNH Industrial that’s now achievable thanks to their partnership.
The partnership allows CNH Industrial’s agricultural brands, Case IH, New Holland Agriculture and STEYR, to initially deploy Cubic’s PACE platform across tractor, harvester, and crop protection models, with possible further future expansion. This global partnership will be operational in Europe, Brazil, North America, and the Asia-Pacific markets for selected models released from 2020.
Cubic Telecom’s PACE platform enables worldwide connections to LTE and 5G, so that CNH Industrial’s brands’ customers can keep remotely collecting and managing data on their terrain and machines to maximise productivity and crop yield all around the world.
With thousands of the company’s vehicles set to be connected from 2020, this collaboration brings Cubic off-road and marks its first delve into the agricultural IoT ecosystem. Later in the year, Cubic Telecom will be extending its connectivity solution offering within the CNH Industrial brand portfolio, to cover both IVECO commercial vehicles as well as CASE and New Holland Construction.
