The Case IH autonomous concept vehicle is coming to Australia for the first time.

The driverless concept vehicle is a cabless tractor that can operate autonomously with a wide range of field implements. 

Case IH Australia New Zealand marketing manager Pete McCann said the concept vehicle is a glimpse into the future.

“It’s the perfect example of the possibilities before us and the fact the next big revolution in agriculture could be just around the corner” he said.

The concept tractor was initially created to demonstrate the available technology and initiate customer feedback on the need for future autonomous products Case IH.

The concept vehicle will be on display for the three days of AgQuip. Case IH will also have representatives from the US present to answer questions.

Mr McCann said the chance to view the ACV at this year’s AgQuip was an opportunity and urged people to make the trip, whether they were directly involved in agriculture or not.

“You don’t have to come from the land or own a tractor to appreciate just how special this concept vehicle is,” he said.

“Autonomous operations are being considered across many industries.” 

AgQuip Gunnedah runs from August 22 to 24.
