Autonomous tractors easing the farmer's burden

Two modes of autonomous operation: In addition to advancing forward, "Auto Mode" allows the tractor to automatically drive in reverse, stop and execute turns. In "Linear Mode," while certain driving maneuvers such as turning are performed by hand, the tractor can travel back and forth on its own when cultivating land. Switching between these two modes is possible in the 2-Series, allowing you to customize it for different operators, or according to skill of the individual and the work itself. Improved workability through intuitive operation and highly-accurate positioning: Operation and settings are controlled via a durable, dustproof and waterproof 10-in. tablet to assure and reliability in the often-harsh environment of farming. Also, it allows for one person to operate two tractors, as the tablet in the manned tractor can be used to operate the unmanned tractor side-by-...
