CES 2021 went all-virtual this year due to COVID-19 but that didn’t stop conference exhibitors from bringing their A-game and most innovative products to digital attendees. From robots to rollable phones, ice cream machines to Precision Ag planting technology, brands from all over the world exhibited their latest tech gear.
John Deere Innovation
This was John Deere’s third year at CES and each year their exhibit is more impressive than the last. This year, John Deere created an immersive virtual reality experience where conference attendees could experience what it’s actually like being inside the John Deere 8RX. They also created a computer-generated simulation that allowed viewers to virtually dive into the soil to watch seeds being planted by the 1775NT ExactEmerge planter in order to really understand the impact Precision Ag planting technology has on achieving efficient and sustainable results. The ExactEmerge planter has over 300 sensors and 140 controls to automatically pinpoint the best placement for a seed to produce optimal results depending on soil conditions.
Partnering With Leaders
John Deere recently announced four new startups they will be partnering with in 2021 to drive continued technological advancements for their customers. The companies they will be working with include, Nori, NVision Ag, Scanit, and Teleo.
- Nori is building solutions to reverse the effects of climate change.
- NVision Ag is using data modeling and aerial imaging to help farmers make better decisions.
- Scanit is working to prevent widespread diseases in plants.
- Teleo is creating tele-operated equipment that can be controlled remotely.
With John Deere’s commitment to innovation and partnership with such exciting startups, we can only begin to guess at what equipment or technology they will debut at next year’s CES event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
