AMAZONE is now a strategic partner of the start-up company AgXeed. The aim of the partnership is to further develop Amazone mounted implements for autonomous use in the field.
An important part of this project is to develop accessible interfaces to ensure compatibility and connectivity between the machine and the towing vehicle, allowing the maximum benefit for both parties to be achieved.
The focus is on the customer and their specific requirements, and enabling those customers, through this partnership between AgXeed, Claas and Amazone, to find the best solution on the market.
The autonomous platforms from AgXeed are an ideal match to the Amazone product range. The combination of minimal ground pressure, optimised weight distribution and flexible mounting zones, open up new possibilities for intelligent solutions for tillage farming.
The tracked AgBot has already been used very successfully in conjunction with Amazone cultivation and seeding equipment in recent years. In addition to cultivation and seeding, the new four-wheeled AgBot can also be used with Schmotzer hoeing systems for mechanical weed control.
The FTender universal front hopper system for seed and fertiliser along with the FT-P, for crop protection agents and liquid fertilisers, can also be combined with a range of Amazone machinery for specific applications.
Various sensor systems will constantly monitor and analyse the work done and it is this optimised process and the quality of work which is the focus of consideration for the autonomous team.
The safety challenges of this technology are met through the different levels of experience within AgXeed, Claas and Amazone.
For the farmer, the use of autonomous management systems ultimately means more time is freed up to focus on other aspects of farming business.
