Driverless Ag Technology company, Raven Industries, Inc., showcased and demonstrated the company’s OMNi suite of technology at the U.S. Farm Progress Show, where the company debuted OMNiDRIVE on Case IH Magnum and showcased OMNiPOWER performing autonomous missions.
OMNiDRIVE was launched by Raven in May 2021, with a year one limited release of 75 aftermarket systems. Today, all systems have been committed to by founding dealers. Through the remainder of the summer, the company’s Founders Club is holding OMNiDRIVE demonstration events, where participants get a first-hand view of OMNiDRIVE controlling a driverless tractor pulling a grain cart and commanding it to sync with a harvester.
“We recognize the challenges our farmers face daily,” said Jim Lilleberg, Director of Precision Ag and Machine Control for Titan Machinery, Inc. “Labor shortages, the need for efficiency improvements and scalability are all problems that OMNiDRIVE, now available for Case IH Magnum tractors, helps solve. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and the trusted partner to help enable it for our farmers. We feel this is the next major revolution in agriculture, and we are excited to be part of it!”
