Farmers work extremely hard. With the Case IH Magnum Autonomous Tractor, they can work a bit less. This concept vehicle, developed in collaboration with Autonomous Solutions, lets farmers take care of tasks like seeding, planting, and tilling, all without hopping behind the wheel. A simple tablet interface lets you set boundaries, plot paths, and set things in motion in less than 30 seconds, and you’ll get a notification should it avoid any obstacles — using a combination of radar, LiDAR, and cameras — or run out of fuel or seeds. In addition, you can control multiple tractors at once, and with carbon fiber front fenders, black and red rims, and LED status/running lights, this robotic crop tender looks good, too.
