MDB Srl, VOGT GmbH & Co. KG, HBC-radiomatic GmbH and REICHHARDT GmbH Steuerungstechnik have been awarded the silver medal for the Innovation Award AGRITECHNICA 2022.

The consortium of companies has developed a system for radio control of autonomous agricultural machinery. The Safety-Intelligence-System SIS REMOTE consists of a functionally safe HBC radio control system and tablet-based ISOBUS automation including automatic steering system from REICHHARDT. SIS REMOTE was developed to commercial readiness for the first time in the LV 600 Plus Green Climber machine from MDB in close cooperation with VOGT. The innovation enables safe and efficient operation of autonomous vehicles in agriculture, road banks and motorways, field management and other public areas. Using GPS for guidance, it is ideal for repetitive tasks
like roadside grass cutting, golf courses, business and solar parks. The track lines can be programmed into the system either manually or with a PC and saved in memory to repeat the task in the future. The official award will be presented at the world's leading trade fair
AGRITECHNICA from 27.02. - 05.03.2022 in Hanover.

Mario Di Biase, founder of MDB Srl says “This joint project demonstrates bestin-class leadership in the industry for the evolution of the radio-controlled tractor sector. In the first evolution of this sector, we have removed the operator from the machine to provide safety and to reduce physical stress. In this second evolution, we are achieving reduced operator workloads for repetitive tasks through autonomous driving.”

Wolfgang Vogt, from VOGT GmbH, says “We have heard intense interest from our end users in a commercially available autonomous driving Green Climber  machines that can perform these repetitive tasks and reduce workload on the operator to make their resources more efficient.”

Dr. Thomas Pohlmann, from REICHHARDT says, “We are proud to be part of this consortium as we have led the industry in the development of autonomous driving with agricultural tractors and are applying this to an adjacent industry for specialized heavy use vehicles.”

Thomas Roels, Head of Sales and Member of General Management at HBCradiomatic GmbH says: “For decades, our products have been setting the standards for the safe control of machines. We are very happy that we were able to implement an optimal solution for the high requirements in this project with our leading technologies in the area of functional safety.”

The commercially available product will be available in 1H of 2022 across the world through factory installation and availability across the MDB distribution and dealer network.
