When it comes to agricultural production, tractors take a central, indispensable position, because of their multitasking abilities. They accept many different periphery tools and machines that can be connected to them. As result these add-ons have led to heavily overloaded cockpits with lots of buttons and levers, most of them not as intuitive and ergonomic as they should be.
On the other side technological development in the area of smart phones and tablets has made us almost equally productive in the office and while on the go. These have long grown out of the gadget niche, today taking a key role in helping us manage daily tasks or controlling specific peripheral machines and tools, in many different areas.
The Sao Ville tractor design study takes these insights as a development basis and offers a sophisticated approach to the modern agricultural management, simplifying the tractor’s cockpit by applying a cost effective, simple to operate, upgradeable interface in form of a tablet. Offering an easy to access and rich in functions platform to the operator, which would be otherwise difficult to implement. Added value is also the full overview and management of the crop by using specific agricultural applications installed on the tablet, able to communicate wirelessly with a central office.
