This Autonomous Tractor Concept, conceived by CNH International, is a driver-less workhorse that’ll happily do your chores without your physical intervention. Well, almost. It can be remotely controlled through a tablet; that means it will do whatever you tell it to do, except you’ll be chilling in the shade with a lemonade at your elbow, only exercising your fingers. An array of sensors on the tractor sends real time data of the farm to the farmer through a dedicated software. From the comfort of his home, the farmer can then set its trajectory, assign it paths and give it tasks. The software works on a handheld tablet as well, in case the farmer’s busy on site doing other tasks.

CNH says that it’ll reduce operator fatigue, while also freeing up skilled resources that can be deployed elsewhere. Also, it can allow 24-hour work cycles, thus increasing productivity significantly. The Autonomous Tractor can even work in tandem with other equipment like a combined harvester, thus letting the farmer multi-task as he supervises it while controlling other equipment. The Autonomous Tractor Concept can be either had with or without a cab. The latter offers both manual and automatic controls, letting the farmer do the complicated stuff himself and letting the tractor do the conventional farming work.
