Raven’s go-to-market strategy for OMNiDRIVE and dealer commitments for the technology are exceeding expectations. OMNiDRIVE was launched by Raven on May 12, 2021, with a year one limited release of 75 aftermarket systems. Today, all systems have been committed to by founding dealers. Through the remainder of the summer, the company is holding OMNiDRIVE demonstration events, where participants get a first-hand view of OMNiDRIVE controlling a driverless tractor pulling a grain cart and commanding it to sync with a harvester. Those interested in experiencing OMNiDRIVE and learning how the technology can dramatically impact their farm operations can sign up on ravenprecision.com/events.

OMNiDRIVE demonstrations this summer are being hosted by the company’s Founders Club members across the United States. Raven created the Founders Club, an elite group of dealers, to enhance the customer experience for ag professionals researching new driverless ag technology through OMNi’s first season of operation. The Founders Club involves intensive dealer training and demonstration requirements that help ag professionals think through a successful Path to Autonomy© for their operation.

“We recognize the challenges our farmers face daily,” said Jim Lilleberg, Director of Precision Ag and Machine Control for Titan Machinery, Inc. “Labor shortages, the need for efficiency improvements and scalability are all problems that OMNiDRIVE, now available for Case IH Magnum tractors, helps solve. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and the trusted partner to help enable it for our farmers. We feel this is the next major revolution in agriculture, and we are excited to be part of it!”
