Trial of new positioning technology for agriculture industry

Colin Jackson Current News, Farm Equipment

GEOSCIENCE AUSTRALIA and the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) are looking for Australian businesses in the agriculture industry interested in improving the capability of their positioning technology. Geoscience Australia and the CRCSI are planning to spend around $400,000 on the user testing of a Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) for the agriculture industry in Australia. Businesses selected for the user testing will work closely with international positioning experts to trial technology that has not been widely tested in Australia before. Improved positioning technology has the potential to enhance a range of applications for the agriculture industry, including precision machinery monitoring and yield mapping. The user testing is part of a two-year project to trial SBAS in the Australasian region. The Australian Government has committed $12 million in funding to the project and the New Zealand Government an additional $2 million. The SBAS technology trial will potentially result in a number of safety, productivity, efficiency and environmental benefits for a range of different industries in Australia. The project will be conducting user testing across nine different industries – agriculture, aviation, construction, maritime, rail, resources, road, spatial and utilities. Interested businesses can apply for the trial by completing an application form available from the CRCSI website. The …

Colin Jackson Coming Events, Current News, Farm Equipment

MICK BRADFORD’s heavy horses will again contribute to his annual recognition of how real horsepower contributed to the development of agriculture, not only in Australia but across the globe, and this year will be joined by a bullock team of eight. For many years Mick Bradford has demonstrated to an enthusiastic audience the might of the heavy horse at a yearly event that has become a tradition at Swanfells Road, Yangan, 15 minutes outside of Warwick. The sixteenth annual charity day will again be held on Sunday, October 23, 2016, from 9am. In an era when agriculture is losing its heritage to modern air-conditioned tractors and labour-saving implements — and now in the early days of robotic machines — Mick Bradford will again showcase farming equipment from the 1800s and early 1900s, depicting an era when horsepower was literally the power of the horse. Organised by the Killarney Lions Club, all funds raised are donated to the RACQ CareFlight. Mick Bradford was just six years of age when he began driving Clydesdales on his parent’s farm. Today he continues to promote the magnificent and graceful horses that have been the mainstay of his life. After school he would use them singularly …
