Fendt introduces its GuideConnect, an automated tractor system that allows one tractor to follow another’s path through the field. With radio connections and GPS signals, the tractors can sync their positions in real-time. The driver in the lead tractor has full access to control the secondary machine’s functions. The concept allows two tractors to work simultaneously in the field and potentially replace one bigger tractor.
This innovation won a Gold Medal at Agritechnica 2011.
