eDriveX Introduced in Europe

Hemisphere GPS and CLAAS Agrosystems recently announced the introduction of the eDriveX automatic steering system in Europe under the CLAAS brand GPS Pilot.

CLAAS Agrosystems is offering GPS Pilot as a part of its precision automated steering solution that also includes the Outback S3 guidance terminal and BaseLineX GPS base station. The new system, GPS Pilot, will be sold throughout CLAAS’ distribution network. Initial volumes of Hemisphere GPS’ eDriveX systems will ship to CLAAS during the fourth quarter of 2010.

“As Hemisphere GPS’ OEM partner in Europe, CLAAS Agrosystems is excited about the improved performance our customers will realize with GPS Pilot,” says Dr. Jens Moeller, Managing Director of CLAAS Agrosystems. “Our mutually beneficial partnership continues to strengthen through the combined expertise of Hemisphere GPS and CLAAS Agrosystems.”

eDriveX, launched through the Outback Guidance dealer network in early 2010, combined with Outback S3 and BaseLineX or A220/A221 RTK GPS systems automatically steers farm machinery to centimeter-level accuracy.

Based on Hemisphere GPS’ patented Celestia connecting technology, eDriveX features straight, free form contour and circle pivot guidance modes and also includes reverse steering. Using the system, farmers can achieve more uniform treatments, reduced waste, and fuel conservation all while reducing driver fatigue.

eDriveX operates at a wide range of speed, features six-axis inertial compensation and integrated wheel angle sensing, and has proportional hydraulics for precise control and line acquisition.

“We are proud of our partnership with a global agricultural machinery leader like CLAAS,” says Kip Pendleton, Vice President and General Manager of Agriculture at Hemisphere GPS. “CLAAS, and the quality reputation they established across Europe and around the world, are well positioned to serve the rapidly growing precision farming needs. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship for years to come.”
