Precision Ag the Focus of New Hemisphere GNSS Toolkit
New solution aims to give equipment manufacturers ability to build their own branded software and hardware
Hemisphere GNSS Inc. is introducing a new OEM toolkit for high-precision GNSS-based guidance and machine control systems for precision agriculture. LandMetrix encompasses next-generation, core software designed to empower heavy equipment manufacturers to deliver their own precision agriculture solutions, including hardware and software, to their customers.
Agriculture equipment manufacturers in large part, have had to rely on after-market systems to provide their machine control positioning technology, Hemisphere GNSS says. “Giving high-precision performance on all tractor sizes, but targeted towards the smaller, sub 140 horsepower, tractor OEM market,” says John McClure, project manager at Hemisphere GNSS. “This is enormous worldwide and at last has a cost-effective guidance, control and telematics solution.”
Hemisphere is providing what it deems the world’s first “full system OEM positioning solution toolkit” for building complete guidance and machine control systems for precision agriculture with the announcement of LandMetrix, which encompasses application software and an array of compatible GNSS hardware components. These include IronOneIS Rugged Display & Computer and VR1000IS integrated GNSS+IMU Smart Receiver/Controller.
