Kubota this week unveiled a futuristic concept autonomous tractor called the X-tractor.Kubota fully autonomous X Tractor concept farming machine, equipped with artificial intelligence.Fully automated electric tractor paves the way for the future of farming with advanced technologies.
Kubota claims the concept is a zero-emission vehicle, using a combination of lithium-ion and solar batteries. Based 100% electric power by a combination of lithium-ion batteries and solar batteries.The independent and electrification technology realized advanced form by new construction designing concept.
Following and developing of the identity of Kubota tractors, created sleek shape through awareness of environmental safeguard and harmony with landscapes.The four-wheel crawler with adjustable riding height enableswork on a wide range of soils and terrains with a single tractor.
Equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) and electrification technology, this “dream tractor” is a completely autonomous tractor that represents the future of farming.
100% electric power by combination of lithium-ion batteries and solar batteries.Based on various data such as weather data and growth rates, AI chooses the appropriate operation and makes actions timely.The four-wheeled crawler adapts its shape to maintain the tractor height at the ideal level, thus performing in various methods.
For the methods which need high traction, the contact area with the ground to be improved by lowering the tractor height in order to reduce its center of gravity. On the other hand, when working above crops for their management, room from the ground to be improved by increasing the tractor height.
The in-wheel motor means it is possible to arbitrarily modify the rotation speed of the four crawlers (front, rear, right, and left) to produce a small turning space for autonomous operation on various sorts of land.
