A NEW and somewhat radical farming autonomy system has been unveiled in the lead up to Ag In Motion, a key farming field to be day held in Canada in about a week’s time.

The DOT autonomous farming system, brainchild of Norbert Beaujot who is the founder of SeedMaster, does not rely on a tractor.

Instead, the DOT technology uses a multi-purpose platform which different implements can be attached to. Beaujot has developed the DOT system in conjunction with SeedMaster sister company Dot Technology Corp.

The basis of the system is a large, U-shaped prime mover or platform which runs on four hydrostatically-driven wheels. The platform attaches to and carries various farming implements, such as a seeder, rather than towing the machinery.

The DOT platform can be controlled remotely and is powered by a 160hp (119kW) diesel engine 

The system will be demonstrated at Ag In Motion which starts July 18.
