Shared innovation. Smarter iron.

At Case IH, we’re building the equipment and technology that makes sense for today’s farmers. No matter where you are on the path to autonomy, our suite of automation and autonomous solutions can improve your productivity and efficiency, while bolstering your bottom line.

This technology is designed to help farmers thrive.

Tillage & Harvest Autonomy

When developing new technology solutions, Case IH looks to our farmers to define the tasks they want to automate and eventually make autonomous.

Tillage and harvest are two critical parts of the full-year farming cycle that have repetitive tasks. Automation of these tasks helps farmers solve labor challenges and improve productivity.

Integrating Raven Autonomy™ sensing and perception technology and using current Case IH automation solutions, like AFS Soil Command™, we were able to deliver two milestone innovations at the 2022 Tech Day Event. Read the full press release to learn more.

Case IH Trident™ 5550 with Raven Autonomy™

Unveiled at the 2022 Farm Progress Show, the Case IH Trident™ 5550 applicator with Raven Autonomy™ is a shared innovation between Case IH and Raven Industries.

This pursuit was grounded in farming, as we worked directly with farmers to ensure this solution made sense for their operation, through customer-focused research. And after extensive in-field testing, we saw improved consistency, less waste, and increased productivity. All with unmatched power and flexibility.

This is autonomy that makes real impact and makes sense for the future of farming.

The Path to Autonomy

The Case IH Trident 5550 applicator with Raven Autonomy is a crucial step in our Path to Autonomy. That path has been defined through extensive Customer Driven Product Design research. We’ve found that current and future technology needs fall into five categories of automation for agricultural field applications. Learn about the kinds of activities associated with each category below.

1: Guidance

All Manned Vehicles

From planting to harvesting, guidance can provide farming operation efficiencies while an operator still runs a vehicle. Technologies — like Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) AccuGuide™ autoguidance and AFS AccuTurn™ — help maintain row-to-row vehicle accuracy in the field, reducing overlaps and skips. Ultimately, these technologies help save fuel, decrease labor costs and reduce operator fatigue while maximizing crop yield.

2: Coordination & optimization

All Manned Vehicles

Vehicle and environmental data are used together to develop an information hub that allows for fieldwide communication between manned equipment. Case IH equipment with ISOBUS Class 3 functionality is one example. This technology allows implements to control tractor functions like ground speed and rear PTO for increased performance and throughput. Coordination and optimization technologies also help organize imported satellite imagery, soil sampling maps and in-field path plans data into a single program accessible from any compatible Case IH vehicle.

3: Operator assisted autonomy

Manned Backup

This technology allows operators to focus on the planter or implement behind them as their vehicle drives itself. This allows the driver to perform activities like assessing a seedbed's agronomic potential with AFS Soil Command ™ from the tractor cab while simply monitoring automated functions — and only providing backup and support when needed.

4: Supervised autonomy

Man In-Field

Producers can provide in-field supervision while unmanned vehicles perform designated tasks. With this, supervised autonomy takes productivity and efficiency to a new level. Would-be operators are empowered to monitor their vehicles' performance and simultaneously accomplish other strategic, in-field tasks. Equipment with this autonomous capability have GPS precision down to sub-inch accuracy and intermediate level sensing as well as perception to avoid environmental obstacles.

5: Full autonomy

Full autonomy allows vehicles to be operated with remote supervision — such as from the farm office — or via artificial intelligence. Additionally, vehicles with full autonomy can account for weather and moisture levels, further serving to increase a farming operation's productivity and efficiency.
