At the large agricultural tradeshow Crosscontrol demonstrates a platform for machine intelligence, including on-board computing products, software tools, and engineering services.
At the show in November Crosscontrol introduces its modular Isobus terminal platform that provides OEMs (original equipment manufacturer) and system suppliers with the freedom to create multifunctional displays that can integrate Isobus controls with additional human machine interface functionality. The offering is supported by 7-inch and 12-inch displays utilizing powerful ARM based CPUs that allow for hardware accelerated graphics. This allows high resolution, sunlight readable PCAP touchscreens featuring wide viewing angles, said the company.
The 12-inch CCpilot VS can simultaneously run UT (universal terminal) and TC (task control) applications and non-Isobus features side by side like video monitoring, navigation, operator guidance, and machine instrumentation in a single array. The latest software package includes a navigation and guidance add-on which can incorporate direct GPS data, prebuilt maps from the farm or third party guidance support into a 3D field display. The feature includes common and customizable guidance patterns and the interface and control functions needed for automatic steering. With the advanced Isobus terminal platform from Crosscontrol, OEMs can provide farmers with a solution that works with all their iron, whatever the color.
The latest line-up of the company’s display computers in sizes 3,5 inch to 15 inch includes CCpilot X900, an x86 based display featuring a quad core processor designed to support resource hungry applications while delivering a premium user experience to operators. The product also supports CAN FD for faster data transfer and increased functionality.
The company also demonstrates the versatile telematics platform with a showcase of the HMIoT concept. This includes the advanced telematics gateway module Crosslink TG and a look at how lean telematics can be achieved using I/O controllers and displays with built-in wireless interfaces to enable integration with smart devices.
Booth attendees will also have the opportunity to gain insight into the open and modular LinX software suite by being given a detailed walkthrough of the developer’s tool chain that allows for the speedy development of application across all Crosscontrol devices. Walkthroughs will be led by the company’s software developers.
Tradeshow guests are invited to visit the company at hall 15 stand J18 at Agritechnica 2019.
