The driver is close, but not in the cabin.
This self-propelled Case IH Trident fertilizer spreader operates without a driver in the cab. It benefits from a device developed by Raven.
Raven just introduced a self-propelled robotic fertilizer spreader in the US. This is a commercial model Case IH Trident 5550 with a capacity of 390 hp. The machine retained the original cab and controls. However, he has the ability to work alone, under supervision from a tablet or any other device. Raven points out that it is “level 4 controlled autonomy” with an external operator but present in the plot. Level 5 would then represent the full autonomy of the robot.
Self-propelled self-propelled fertilizer spreader: continuation of the DOT robot
Recall that Raven bought the Canadian robot DOT in 2020. Then, in 2021, the company joined the CNH Industrial group. Hence the privileged collaboration with Case IH. The Raven report indicates that this self-propelled self-propelled fertilizer spreader has already been tested in the American cooperative Agtegra.
