Sensinov and John Deer present the first tractor connected to a car in Sophia Antipolis
In a move to reduce the number of collisions between farm vehicles and other road users and help improve traffic safety in rural areas, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has demonstrated the world’s first tractor that communicates with cars.
The demonstration on show at ETSI is made up of a John Deere tractor and the communications platform from Sensinov and Agricultural industry Electronics Foundation (AEF). The exhibit shows how the two vehicles communicate using visual and sound signals to give warning of their presence, thanks to the standard developed by ETSI’s oneM2M partnership project.
