Raven Industries, a leader in agriculture technology and the recently acquired owner of the DOT autonomous implement platform has announced the launch of its product brand and autonomous growth platform, OMNi.

The OMNi product brand highlights Raven’s advancements in autonomous solutions for agriculture with a strategic offering of two integrated products: OMNiDRIVE and OMNiPOWER.

Effective immediately, OMNiDRIVE replaces the AutoCart name from the previous acquisition of Smart Ag. While the former DOT brand is now OMNiPOWER.

All of Raven’s intelligent autonomous solutions for the agriculture industry, current and future, will be branded with the OMNi prefix and are part of one connected ecosystem.

“We understand the importance of quickly scaling and adopting new power platforms, farming applications, and implements into purpose-built autonomous agricultural machines,” said Dominic Walkes, director of strategic initiatives at Raven.

The OMNiDRIVE platform provides industry-leading perception, detection, and avoidance systems along with fully integrated boundary creation and paddock path planning path planning

“OMNiDRIVE is a significant growth platform and we are actively working with OEM partners to release compatibility on additional tractors and implements.”

OMNiDRIVE is Raven’s aftermarket technology kit that transforms existing tractors into driverless machines.

The technology connects, manages, and safely operates autonomous agricultural machinery and its first application carries over from the AutoCart product that provided combine harvester operators with the ability to autonomously control tractors towing grain chaser bins.

The technology is currently compatible with the following tractors:

Case IH Magnum CVT (2014-2020 models): M250 / 280 / 310 / 340 / 380 (available in October 2021);

New Holland CVT (2014-2020 models): T8.320 / 350 / 380 / 410 / 435 (available in October 2021); and John Deere 8Rs Powershift and IVT (2010-current models).

Official ordering began on May 12 2021. Visit www.ravenprecision.com/omnidrive-offer to learn more about OMNiDRIVE introductory pricing.

The self-propelled DOT autonomous implement power platform has been renamed the OMNiPOWER

OMNiPOWER is a self-propelled power platform that easily interchanges with farm implements. Farmers can launch missions in autonomous mode or control directly from the tablet. In either instance, no driver is necessary. Currently, OMNiPOWER has interchangeable implements for spreading and spraying, with additional applications coming soon.

More OMNiPOWER implements will launch quickly and consistently as Raven works with OEM partners to release branded implements. See www.ravenprecision.com/driverless-ag/partner-with-us to learn more.

OMNiPOWER was made available for order from June 1, with delivery in the spring of 2021 to many world markets.
