JLT Mobile Computers announces that it has entered into a partnership with Machinefabriek Steketee B.V., who are using JLT VERSO™+ 10 rugged computers to integrate their Smart Farming solutions for precision agriculture.
Steketee is a leading developer of high-tech weeding and soil cultivation machines, used by arable farmers and horticulturalists worldwide. Leveraging its extensive experience in the agriculture industry, Steketee develops innovative Smart Farming solutions that increase farmers’ efficiency and improve crop yields through the use of IT. Their IC-Light hoeing solution uses a high-definition integrated camera to detect crops in the field and to render a digital image that can be used to detect cultivated crops and enable hoeing machine alignment with outstanding accuracy. The digital image can also be used to measure green surfaces, capture discolorations or count crops.
Integrating the IC-Light solution with the rugged VERSO+ 10 computer from JLT Mobile Computers brings exceptional reliability and high computing performance. The rugged VERSO+ 10 computer deployed in Steketee cultivation solutions is designed to withstand significant temperature changes, severe vibrations, bright sunlight and is IP65 dust and waterproof, making it ideal for use in the agriculture industry.
Featuring the revolutionary JLT PowerTouch™ display technology, the VERSO+ 10 computer provides a user-friendly experience comparable to modern consumer devices – both with a gloved and ungloved hand – while being virtually unbreakable. The clear and bright projected capacitive touch screen makes it perfectly readable in any conditions, including direct sunlight, enabling real-time visualization of field mapping information right in the field.
