AGCO's auto-guidance partner

AGCO's Next generation of satellite-guided steering assist systems will be supplied by TSD Integrated Controls, a joint venture company formed by Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) and Sauer-Danfoss. They will supply AGCO's Auto-Guide system that is integrated into AGCO's equipment brands, including Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra.

“In AGCO's Auto-Guide, we developed the world's first integrated multi-constellation-capable (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) integrated antenna, receiver and guidance control,” reports Ivan Di Federico, TPS senior vice president. “It brings together the best of both worlds with precision positioning and control from Topcon and the industry-leading steering solutions by Sauer-Danfoss.”

AGCO says the new, highly advanced Auto-Guide system should help its agricultural customers increase productivity and reduce input costs.
