Engineering at its best

Tractor Engineering Solution

From first concept up to Start of Production - meeting time and cost targets

Flexible application diversity in a cost effective manner, productivity increase including precision as well as sustainability are driving the industry.


The Challenge

Application diversity leads to many variants

  • How can I manage application diversity in a cost effective manner?
  • How does the future powertrain have to look like in the off –road industry?


New technologies electrification

  • Which types of electrification are most advanced for the agricultural industry?
  • How to deal with the diversity of tractor and implement producers concerning electrification approaches?


Process Optimization

  • How to use electrification in order to optimize power supply at the implement?
  • How to successfully use autonomous driving solutions considering tractor and implement control?
