DOT Autonomous Agriculture Platform
What autonomous cars will do for the road, autonomous machinery will do for the farm. At least that's the expectation behind the DOT Autonomous Agriculture Platform. This diesel-powered vehicle has a U-shaped frame that lets it carry various implements directly instead of off to the side or rear, making it more efficient. A bevy of both short- and long-range sensors let it follow its path plan with sub-inch accuracy, while also ensuring it can stop automatically if it senses any safety risks.
