The joint venture will develop technology for advanced machine control systems, sensing applications, automated subsystems, machine prognostics and machine health monitoring, specific protein and grain control systems, and development of innovative electromechanical devices and systems.
This will provide AGCO and Appareo Systems a key vehicle to deliver advanced technology and equipment management solutions, supporting a variety of crop types and markets globally.
The collaboration will focus on the need for more advanced electronic technology centered on data collection, wireless communication, advanced sensors and intelligent machine control. The proposed joint venture will build on the momentum of Fuse Technologies, AGCO’s next generation approach to precision agriculture and precision machine management.
Appareo will contribute to the initiative through research and development, intellectual property generation and advanced technology concept development, which will be deployed through AGCO Technology Solutions.
