I read an interesting statistic lately about driverless vehicles — especially interesting to those of us in mid-America.
Do you know who the biggest producer (by volume) is?
It makes sense. John Deere has been working on smart machines and implements since the 1990’s, and they’ve learned a thing or two in the last 20 years.
It appears John Deere learned that in order to create an autonomous vehicle, their machines have to sense everything a human would. Once the vehicle does this, there are complications to the sensors, such as dust and rain.
None of John Deere’s products are completely self-driving yet, but they seem to lead the production so far. Interesting.
