Hello Tractor: How the ‘Uber for Farming’ is Revolutionizing Agriculture
Hello Tractor, a firm in sub-Saharan Africa that connects tractor owners with farmers, is benefiting from several powerful new technologies maturing such as the IoT, cloud, and AI, reports Ryan Daws for IoT Tech News.
“We start by informing the tractor owners of what activities that tractor is completing in the field,” says Hello Tractor CEO Jehiel Oliver. “If you look at sensor packages on higher horsepower tractors, which we don’t typically work with, we replace those sensors with predictive analytics for maintenance and repair. We deliver those insights through AI and machine learning.”
