Russians work on autonomous combines
Russian agricultural holding company Agropolis plans to invest over US$225 million during the next five years to develop an unmanned combine harvester. Based in Tatarstan in central Russia, the company hopes to have autonomous prototypes in the field in two years, and expects the price of the first commercial version to be 15-20% more expensive than a manually-operated combine.
Russian farm machinery maker Rostselmash is one of the main shareholders in Agropolis, and this company’s combines will be used for the project. Cognitive Technologies, another Agropolis shareholder, has already developed unmanned vehicle control systems for Russian truck maker Kamaz.
