Trimble GNSS Technology Tapped to Power Autonomous Robot Tractor
Yanmar's first SMARTPILOT autonomous robot tractor to be powered from within by Trimble's GNSS 2-in-1 smart antenna and VRS Now™.
Japan-based Yanmar Agribusiness is a pioneer in cutting-edge technology that provides agricultural machinery and services tailored to the changing times and unique requirements of countries around the world. In recent years, agriculture has faced a range of serious issues, including an aging farming population and reduction in the number of people involved in farm work, while larger global issues such as extreme weather have exacerbated food shortages. As a global innovator, Yanmar’s goal is to minimize the burden of heavy labor wherever it can.
As the company prepared to launch its latest endeavor – the SMARTPILOT robotic tractor series – Yanmar knew it needed a GNSS smart antenna that allowed a stable and reliable position with precise accuracy to ensure its success.
