IDC TechBrief: Autonomous Tractors in Agriculture
This IDC TechBrief provides technology and business executives in broadacre agricultural producers with an executive snapshot of the state of autonomous tractor technology and offerings available today. Agriculture organizations are looking to use automation technologies more to overcome labor shortages and improve harvest yields.
"Automation promises to increase efficiency by removing humans from dull, dangerous, and repetitive work common in agriculture processes; automation also allows for data collection at an unprecedented scale and quality level," says Aron Cory, research manager, Worldwide Agriculture Digital Transformation Strategies. "Farmers should consider autonomous tractors as they refresh their equipment fleets as recent technology developments, and support from major tractor manufacturers, make automotive tractors more attractive."
