We are hosting an Autonomy demonstration on Sept 8th, running with no formal agenda from 9 am until approx. 4 pm.
The location is the NW corner of Bentpath Line and Downie road, just west of Haggerty Creek about 1 mile.
We will be demonstrating the Raven OmniDrive system (Formerly SmartAg), the autonomous grain buggy system, using a JD S670 combine and a JD 8260R tractor, which enables the combine operator to summon and unload into a grain buggy without the need for a driver in the tractor.
This will be a simulated harvest – driving the combine down the field, and letting the grain buggy come to the combine, and return to the loading area. A similar approach could be used with a produce cart etc.
In addition, we will be demonstrating the combined use of the OmniPower (formerly DOT) autonomous spreader, being used in sync with a terragator at the same time, in the same field.
The demonstration will be show efficiencies in using multiple machines in the same field, with a single operator.
We will also have on hand the Naio Oz autonomous weeding robots, as well as the completed RoamIO autonomous soil scanning robot.
