The old saying “boys and their toys” will forever ring true. The newest motorized vehicle garnering attention on car buff sites, is not a car but a tractor.
Called the Yanmar Y-Concept YT01 Advanced Tractor, that mouthful is a 3,600-pound, 10 foot long, decked out and mean looking farm machine. The vehicle is streamlined adding to the modern element.
It has a slimmer engine compartment along with an expanded, wider cab to give the driver better views. According to a Japanese design firm “"it incorporates an advanced GPS satnav system that will eventually enable it to work autonomously, thus improving yields".
In layman’s terms, the tractor utilizes an 'unmanned work system', which gives it a Transformer type of quality, allowing one human to control two tractors at the same time.
Although the advanced tractor was debuted earlier this year, it recently made an appearance at the Tokyo Motor Show, generating additional attention. Mass production of the model is expected to begin in 2015.
The company behind the tractor also wants to incorporate the driverless or unmanned technology in their other vehicles. (3, last)
