As a result of the outstanding product design and engineering of its X Series Combines, John Deere has been recognized in the Robotics category of the 2021 CES Innovation Awards. This is the second straight year in which John Deere has received a CES Innovation Award.
The X Series combines are equipped with ActiveVision camera technology, which helps producers see inside the combine's grain tank and observe production. Users can easily monitor the condition of harvested grain, right down to the individual kernels. The technology works using algorithms to provide producers with the insight they need to make decisions on the go.
"John Deere is honored to receive this award as it highlights our ongoing commitment to agriculture, innovation, and technology," said Jahmy Hindman, chief technology officer for John Deere. "The award recognizes our efforts to build cutting-edge smart machines, systems, and solutions that unlock customer economic value through enhanced precision, automation, speed, and efficiency previously not possible."
The X Series combines can thresh, separate, and clean more bushels per hour, even under unpredictable and challenging conditions. The artificial intelligence, computer vision, and in-field machine-to-machine communication of the combines boost overall productivity for farmers.
"Technology and innovation are at the core of how John Deere helps farmers overcome uncertainty and improve efficiency," said Hindman. "To make our customers the most profitable and sustainable farmers in the world, John Deere challenges the status quo to deliver smart, highly autonomous and connected machines, like our X Series combines that unlock opportunities for them to make more informed and accurate decisions at scale, which in turn supports the greater goal of feeding a growing world population."
