CES 24: 4 Stand-Out Smart Farming Solutions
A handful of firms brought ag tech products to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this past week.
The ag-focused exhibitors at CES seemed focused on unlocking the potential of artificial intelligence and data aggregation in farm tech, vehicle automation and electrification, and using technology to enable more sustainable production.
Here’s a quick roundup of how ag was on display at CES:
Infinitum Aircore Mobility Liquid Cooled Engine Tech. By swapping the iron core design common in most motors today with a rotating layer of solid “stators” (they look like circular plastic circuit boards), Infinitum has reimagined a more efficient, longer lasting, smarter and lighter engine. Aircore is commercialized and available today, and Chief Strategy Officer Bhavnesh Patel says the company is working with an undisclosed Midwest-based ag equipment manufacturer to get the smart motors into corn country. They also make great irrigation pump motors, Patel says.
