Monarch Tractor launches fully electric autonomous tractor

Monarch Tractor claims to have developed the world’s first fully electric, driver optional, smart tractor integrated on a single platform. The company says it already has secured several hundred farms as preliminary customers.

The tractor can operate with or without a driver. The company utilises autonomous hardware and software technology to provide driver-assist and driver-optional operations. The tractor can perform pre-programmed tasks without a driver or an operator can use Monarch’s interactive automation features including Gesture and Shadow modes to have the tractor follow a worker on the job…

Via a smartphone or personal device, users receive tractor alerts, updates on current micro-weather conditions, detailed operations reports, data collection, analysis, and storage for more efficient farm planning.

Monarch Tractor has a starting price of $?50,000. Shipping will commence in Fall 2021.
