Integrating a telematics solution into a mobile machine has always been a challenge. The reasons seem obvious: it’s difficult and complex to choose the right cloud technology and gateway device as well as a connectivity solution that works everywhere. Especially if you want to keep costs under control and risks low.
Buying mobile machines is no longer just about high quality or individual machine functions. Today, buyers of premium machines also expect a comprehensive digital offering with a corresponding gain in efficiency. On the other hand, machine manufacturers secure their competitiveness with their own offering and often even reduce their service costs.
Ammann, PALFINGER, Prinoth, Rosenbauer and TTControl collaborate on application-oriented solutions as part of the now initiated Autonomous Operation Cluster (AOC). The multinational companies will jointly develop key technologies for autonomous operation elements for series production of mobile machinery functions and off-highway vehicles.
TTControl announced the launch of the high-performance TTC 2000 series of electronic control units (ECU) that are designed from the ground up to meet the needs of intelligent vehicles. The series consists of complete sets of compatible ECU families with different processing power, scalable according to advanced and automated off-highway applications. The first member of this series, the mid-sized TTC 2300 family, will kick off sales in March 2022 (even though Agritechnica has been canceled).
Smart farming is more than a buzz word. By 2050, the global population will have grown by 2 billion to a total of 9.7 billion, according to the United Nations. Increasing agricultural productivity and sustainable food production is critical to provide this population with food. Smart farming achieved through Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies can create higher precision agriculture to help meet this demand.
TTControl opened together with six multinational partners the computer vision and AI-focused research and applications center Covision Lab.
