Case IH autonomous tractor development takes silver medal in SIMA awards scheme
- Case IH has been awarded a silver medal in the Innovation Awards scheme of SIMA, the French international farm machinery exhibition, in recognition of the potential its Autonomous Concept Vehicle (ACV), a driverless version of the Case IH Magnum CVX/CVT tractor, offers for the advancement of agriculture.
- The silver medal for the Case IH ACV recognises the value of relieving operators from monotonous field operations, allowing that labour to be redeployed more effectively, and bringing the next step in precision farming efficiency.
- “The need for this technology exists because in some parts of the world it’s increasingly difficult to find skilled labour to work long hours on large farms during busy periods,” says Dan Stuart of Case IH. This innovative technology was first shown early September at the 2016 US Farm Progress Show (Iowa).
