  • Automation of large machines in farming? Yep. We’re there. Check out Nick Saik’s video to learn about this amazing machine.

    This week DOT technologies had a successful demonstration of the DOT Autonomous Platform and the Pattison Connect Sprayer, in front of 200 farmers. Most of us have probably seen or heard of automatic equipment in Agriculture, but DOT stands alone as a totally unique take on equipment in the field. For starters, it’s not a robot tractor. It doesn’t pull machinery through the field, like a tractor. DOT picks up and carries a range of different attachments. Sprayer, Seeder, Harvest Cart, Roller, Colter, and many more to come.
    Heck, you could probably program it to paint the fence too. The future of Agriculture is automation, and it’s going to come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. DOT hits fields all over North America this summer, and Know Ideas Media is excited to see how it goes!

    About DOT Technology Corporation

    Autonomous cars will soon be driving the streets of the world; these cars can guide themselves without a human conducting any operations. In agriculture, standardized autonomous ‘power units’ have the ability to complete limitless tasks for farmers while freeing their time for other work.

    The DOT Power Platform is a mobile diesel-powered platform designed to handle a large variety of implements commonly used in agriculture, mining and construction. Its U-shaped frame facilitates the direct loading of implements, so that, once loaded, the implement “becomes one” with the mobile powered platform.

    DOT’s short- and long-range sensors make the power platform more accurate and attentive than any human. DOT constantly updates itself with images of the physical world around itself and processes the data at lightning speed. Capable of making decisions, DOT will send alerts to the farmer if it is unsure how to proceed.

    Working for farmers, DOT completes tasks autonomously and enables farmers to spend more of their time focusing on the overall operation of their farm.
