Agtonomy selects Fixposition for farm vehicle GPS

Agtonomy, an ag-tech software start-up, has been working with Fixposition to integrate Fixposition’s Vision Fusion Technology to provide an element of its precise global positioning solution in its TeleFarmer solution.

Agtonomy’s TeleFarmer solution is comprised of innovative software, a suite of apps, and an electric vehicle reference tractor.

By utilizing Fixposition as one of its localization sensors, Agtonomy is able to achieve even more reliable and more efficient performance in how it knows the position of the agricultural vehicles it controls.

In partnership, both companies will be working closely together to further enhance value-adding solutions in ag-tech and positioning.

Tim Bucher, CEO of Agtonomy, says: “Fixposition’s offering allowed us to accelerate development and extend our field of operation at a very good price-performance ratio, specifically as it provides performance on par with other high-end RTK-INS systems.”

Zhenzhong Su, CEO of Fixposition, says: “We are excited to work with Agtonomy. They provide a sustainable and versatile autonomous platform for agriculture addressing the global need for more efficient food production.

“They are a great partner for us as with the Vision-RTK 2 solution we can enable better localization of their vehicles and continuously innovate from our joint learning in the field.”
