China's first electric driverless Farm Tractor


Recommended Posts

New China TV showed off China's first self driving all electric farm tractor. This tractor is able to plow the field and return to the barn and plug back in for recharging. The tractor is completely computer controlled so you can set the pattern of plowing, area to be plowed, etc. China sees this as a great advancement in helping to feed the people better with less labor wasted. The torque of electric motors is perfect for this type of work were consistency is required over speed.

China is so going to bury us in so many ways. They ahve much less fear of the actual real world future that is upon us than Americans do.

That is my concern too, this Head in the Sand Ostrich approach that seems to have fostered here is going to truly make us like the UK. Socialist mess of fear everyone and fall behind the future for kids.

Global business is a reality, focus on our national infrastructure and schools to make sure our kids, the future workers of America have the skills needed to compete.

I know we have GPS tractors that can autodrive but they still require a person behind the wheel who just sits there once they line up and start the tractor going. China took this a step further and truly got the person out of the field with a office based approach to charge, disconnect, drive to the field, plow, return to the barn, plug back in.

I can see the ability to feed humanity being so much easier when silent electric tractors can plow through the night except when they need to recharge and reduce the prep, tilling, planting down to a fraction of the time.

I would not be surprised to see them take this to the next level of harvesting which will further reduce labor needs on the farm.

Well...maybe.

But not because of unmanned EV tractors.

Unmanned, autonomous tractors came out here a few years ago.

We've had that for a few years now.

Mining trucks too. 

And Im sure the whole world over has had that. 

I mean....chinese built robotic home vacuums have flooded the market about a decade ago too...

LG, Samsung, Roomba, Dyson...

No biggie.

What I fear though, is the education levels and the continued dummying down of our North American society that will lead us to our demise.

And it be from our OWN doing.  Not from outside foreign threats. We. We do it to ourselves.

Very true....but I still think China through economc growth and a growth in innovation is going to pose a serious challenge for us.

Both our own stupidity and the growth of other countries is an existential threat.

Well, the U.S. use to be an innovative country.  To a certain degree, it still is.  Silicone Valley, for better or worse, is in the thick of things regarding computer controlled transportation and electric powered vehicles. 

Detroit is still a driving force in the automotive landscape.  Its just that Americans, it seems, still in 2019, do not want to embrace Detroit automobiles. Not to put you on the spot, but you do hate on Ford. 

What? You think foreign multi-nationals dont phoque around with our lives?  Only the American ones?

Volkswagen just recently got caught with a Diesel scandal...

Look at what is happening with Renault-Nissan?  

If Goshn embezzled, shame on him. If Japan and Nissan wants to stick it to France and Renault, shame on Japan and Nissan. 

Look at Huwaei and China and Canada and the US...

And...there it is!!!

You cant, as an American, DENY other countries to grow...and get to do what you as an American got to enjoy since the end of WW2...and not have other peoples enjoy that too. 

And the thing is, some of you Americans are bitchin' about free trade not working...or that a Global economy is not working...

Its working out great! It made lots and lots and lots of money for American CEOs and American corporations. 

It also made some countries grow...to the detriment of American people?

Sure...

But the thing is...if that would not have happened, then the rest of the world would be America's bitch?

Its OK for Americans to have the world as their bitch, just as how the Brits had their colonials...

But in reality, it aint OK... America would be fighting wars in her homeland worse than Sept. 11 if that were the case. Just ask the Brits...

You guys, fought for your independence from them after all...

But the growth of other countries is not, should not, be a detriment to your own growth. 

This aint a political forum, and this is a thread about a Chinese autonomous tractor...lets leave it at that.

...and at the end of the day...China is still a serious existential threat to the US. This is just further evidence that they are continually modernizing and desire greatly to pass us in technology.

We got those same tractors...

This one is a prototype...

 

But this one is not...

 

I had a long rant and speech going on...*SIGH*   Too political...

Listen, John Deere, an American company has that domain covered. You could sleep in peace....
