Truck & Off-Highway Engineering - April 2022 - 5

TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS
of CNH Industrial's path to greater automation
and eventual autonomy. The
tech stack is defined across five dimensions:
architecture, connectivity and
data platform, guidance, automation
and intelligence, and autonomy.
" Raven bridges our autonomous gap
and adds tremendous automation capabilities
as a leader in sprayer applications
and their expanded suite of guidance
technology, " Garg said, also touting
Raven's V2V (vehicle to vehicle) expertise.
" We are testing future-forward solutions
to be ready for market, such as
enhancing our V2V communication so
machines don't overlap work areas. "
The new Case IH 50 Series sprayer
utilizes precision tech from Raven, including
the automated boom height
leveling, rate control monitoring, the
Hawkeye 2 individual nozzle control and
VSN vision steering guidance. The system
allows sprayers to cover 20% more
acres per day and avoid respraying the
same area. Environmental benefits include
reducing nitrogen usage by 9%
and plant growth regulators (PGR) usage
by 20%, while aiding harvest by
15%, according to Derek Neilson, president
of the Agriculture segment.
CNH Industrial also is working with
Augmenta on " See and Act " real-time AI
vision analytics for fertilizer and pesticide
control on sprayers. The vision system
Raven, Augmenta and CNH Industrial team to advance precision sprayer technology that can reduce
the application of fertilizers by up to 40% while increasing yield.
can reduce the application of fertilizers
by up to 40% while increasing yield, Garg
said. Augmenta and CNH Industrial are
currently testing this enhanced system in
Texas. " In Q2 of this year, we will start
testing See and Act capabilities with customer
validation, " he said, adding that
they're exploring other applications for
the vision AI as well.
Combines are another segment that
greatly benefits from automation,
Neilson said. " An automated combine
increases productivity by fully 30 to 40
percent, " he said. The technology helps
to protect the soil, preserve grain quality
and reduce impurities to obtain
higher grain prices, and allows a semiskilled
operator to fully optimize the
machine's output. " We will launch automated
features across all our combine
product ranges. We are already well
advanced in the development of the
next iteration of automation, " he added.
Auto-Cart allows the farmer to monitor and operate a driverless tractor from the cab of the
harvester while it offloads on the go, then return the tractor to a predetermined unloading area.
TRUCK & OFF-HIGHWAY ENGINEERING
Software engineers needed
The Raven acquisition, while a significant
step in buttressing CNH Industrial's
tech stack capabilities, does not completely
close all the gaps from the getgo.
" What we want is an industry-leading
solution across precision and autonomy, "
Wine explained. " Just because
we closed the acquisition doesn't immediately
close the gap in terms of
where we want to be. It's mostly plug
and play, we can go rather quickly, but
it needs more software engineers, we
need to [further] advance the stack. So,
there's work to do, but it's a clear path
to get there. "
" We've built a lot of it but there are
some opportunities with sensor technologies
and the perception stack
where we can always add more sensors
and more capabilities to make it stronger, "
Garg added. Precision Technology
is now a dedicated team responsible for
