How the Use of Rugged Computers Increases Farming Efficiency in Precision Agriculture

  •  

Steketee offer innovative high-tech solutions with unparalleled reliability and market-leading accuracy thanks to integrating their software with rugged computers from JLT Mobile Computers

Leveraging its extensive experience in the agriculture industry, Steketee develops innovative “Smart Farming” solutions that increase farmers’ efficiency and improve crop yields through the use of IT. The Steketee IC-Light hoeing solution is
integrated with the rugged VERSO™+ 10 computer from JLT Mobile Computers for exceptional reliability and high computing performance.

The IC-Light solution uses a high-definition integrated camera to detect crops in the field and to render a digital image that can be used to detect cultivated crops and enable hoeing machine alignment with outstanding accuracy. The digital image can also be used to measure green crop surfaces, capture discolorations or count crops.

The rugged VERSO+ 10 computer deployed in Steketee cultivation solutions is designed to withstand significant temperature changes, severe vibrations and is IP65 dust and waterproof, making it ideal for use in the agriculture industry.

“The compact format, high performance and great resistance to wear and tear makes the rugged PCs from JLT very suitable to our needs,” confirmed the R&D Director at Steketee. “The ease with which they can be mounted and dismounted in the farmers’ tractor is another great advantage as this simplifies service and allows devices to be ported between tractors or removed at the end of the working day to prevent theft.”
Featuring the revolutionary JLT PowerTouch™ display technology, the VERSO+ 10 computer provides a user-friendly experience comparable to modern consumer devices – both with a gloved and ungloved hand – while being virtually unbreakable. The clear and bright projected capacitive touch screen makes it perfectly readable in any conditions, including direct sunlight, enabling real-time visualization of field mapping information right in the field. productimage
