Agricultural Vehicle Precision Control System

Problem

Feeding the world of 7.4 billion people is hard work, especially when the population plans to increase to 11.2 billion by 2100. One of our customers supports future food security by creating equipment the enables higher food production rates. In order to do this, they need precision planting methods. This large agricultural heavy equipment manufacturer approached SEP with a need to build software to support a new generation of tractors. This client was looking for a development partner with extensive Agile expertise to work alongside their Scrum teams.

Solution

At SEP we view each engagement as a business partnership. Our 10 plus years of Agile development enabled us to integrate quickly with regional or global teams. Through this partner approach we were able to design and develop the software components of an embedded display system for delivering precision agricultural prescriptions to enable this new generation of tractors. This product allows increased food production through the latest planting methods that leverage precision GPS to repeatedly and reliably seed, fertilize and harvest row crops. This level of full growing environment enablement and delivering the right seed to the desired soil type while maintaining early stage growth needs ultimately allows for higher crop yields and increased profits.

Result

Our value partnership with this client has grown in size and reach over time.

    Highlights:
  • Developed custom content that used high precision GPS controls
  • Custom created user interface design
  • Supplemented and improved the existing control systems and data delivery mechanisms
  • Collaborated with client’s product team to supply on-site engineering support and cross-cultural pollination
