Electric and autonomous vehicles conquer almost every branch of industry, so it is high time for the most important, namely agriculture. The Japanese heavy equipment manufacturer already has its futuristic vision.
The tractor’s name is “X Tractor” and it is fully autonomous and has an ecological, electric drive. As you also might agree with us that this is what modern agriculture should look like, which is directed towards ecology. The tractor of the future was designed to celebrate the 130th anniversary of this Japanese company. On board were the most advanced technologies that humanity currently has.
The farmer can supervise the machine directly from home, e.g. via a smartphone or tablet. A special dedicated application allows you to monitor all the most important tractor working parameters as well as to organize its work in the field. Its designers emphasize that the X Tractor is intended for farmers who want to cultivate organic farming on a larger scale and want even higher quality vegetables they grow.
The Japanese tractor of the future looks truly futuristic. The autonomous machine does not have a cabin, but it is equipped with a special drive, which guarantees operation even in the toughest conditions. The vehicle also can be paired with others used on the farm and create an agricultural ecosystem. Kubota engineers point out that the futuristic tractor “X Tractor” can solve problems in agricultural development and reduce the effects of world hunger.
It’s obvious that the intelligent vehicle is equipped with artificial intelligence technologies. It can perform virtually all activities in the field. This means that a qualified person, in this case a farmer, is needed to service it. The machine maps the area itself, and then it can be entrusted with tasks that it will perform with due diligence. Machine learning systems are based on the valuable knowledge of thousands of Japanese farmers.
