Autonomous tractor is a driverless farm vehicle that provides massive effort at reduced velocities for tillage purpose along with other farming activities. It is considered to be autonomous as it functions without the aid of human and is automated or self-driven.

Furthermore, these tractors are light-weighted and have the ability to perform tasks for twenty-four hours. These vehicles are also termed as robotic tractors and are utilized in farming lands. Additionally, these tractors provide unique and outstanding farming experience to farmers.

Need for operational efficiency as well as high crop yield has resulted in massive demand for autonomous tractors in the recent years. In addition to this, growing government aid to accept new technologies are likely to boost the popularity of autonomous tractors over the years to come. Apart from this, these products assist the farmers in gaining vital information pertaining to soil conditions, crop output, rate of fuel usage, and others. All these aforementioned factors are likely to drag the growth curve of the industry in

Drone truck startup Einride unveils new driverless vehicles for autonomous freight hauling

Einride, the Swedish autonomous trucking startup, unveiled a new vehicle type that the company hopes to have on the road delivering freight starting in 2021. The vehicles, dubbed Autonomous Electric Transport (AET), came in four different variations. And much like Einride’s previous prototypes, they come without steering wheels, pedals, windshields, and, in general, no cab at all.

Einride has been in the business of releasing interesting, eye-catching prototype vehicles since it was founded in 2016. There was the cab-less T-Pod, released in 2017, four of which are operating on public roads hauling freight for Oatly, the Swedish food producer. A year later, the company unveiled the T-Log, built to be more powerful than its predecessor for the job of (you guessed it) hauling tons of giant tree logs. Now it has a next-generation vehicle that it hopes it can put into production.

Einride’s also been engaged with the less glamorous part of the job, which is testing, validating, and seeking regulatory approval for its vehicles, all of which are electric and can be controlled remotely by a human operator, in addition to operating autonomously without human intervention. The company has yet to reveal its plans for production and manufacturing.

Design-wise, the AET vehicles look almost identical to Einride’s Pod (previously T-Pod) prototype: sleek, white, cab-less pods with smooth lines and an otherworldly feel. Einride CEO Robert Falck said the AET is more aerodynamic than previous iterations, which will help when the company starts to scale up its manufacturing. “When you nail a design the first time, why reinvent the wheel?” Falck said.

The new AET vehicles come in four levels. The first two — AET 1 and AET 2 — have top speeds of 30 km/h (18 mph), weigh 26 tons, have payloads of 16 tons, and a battery range
